Life in Scotland for LGBT Young People: Education Report is the biggest survey of its kind, with 350 respondents aged 13-25 answering a range of questions about their experiences of being LGB or T in educational establishments.  Uniquely, the report also asked young people how they felt educational establishments could combat bullying and a range of recommendations are presented in the report.

promotiong good practice

Promoting Good Practice was a project carried out in Scotland, funded by the European Commission DG Justice.  The project was delivered in partnership with Legebitra – a Slovenian LGBT organisation.  The project aimed to make EU member states more confident to develop strategies to combat homophobia within education settings. We delivered research and scoping work, before disseminating this at an international conference held in Edinburgh in April 2011. The research and strategic report which were produced as part of the project can be downloaded here.
