There are over 5,500 NEU members who identify as LGBT+ and undoubtedly there are more staff working in education who do not feel safe or supported to come out at work. As well as safety for LGBT+ children, young people and families, LGBT+ inclusive education is essential to creating safe and equal workplaces.

LGBT+ equality

LGBT+ education professionals, pupils and families are vital members of all nursery, school and college communities and of our union.

Just Like Us

Just Like Us is the LGBT+ charity for young people, founded for a simple reason: growing up LGBT+ is still one of the most challenging experiences young people can face. That’s why we’re working for a world where LGBT+ young people live awesome lives.

School Diversity Week is our national initiative empowering school staff and pupils across the country to tackle homophobic, biphobic, and transphobic bullying by organising activities that celebrate LGBT+ equality in education. Last year over 600,000 pupils and school staff were involved in the week across the UK.
