We are delighted to present our Inclusivity Award to highlight and celebrate LGBTQ+ inclusive practice.

We want to help organisations to demonstrate their positive practice, which in turn will enable the LGBTQ+ community and allies to easily identify services where they can feel confident about equality of provision.

We will award our benchmark to organisations who meet the following minimum criteria:

  • Direct examples of positive practice fed back through our membership
  • LGBTQ+ inclusive equal opportunities monitoring in place
  • LGBTQ+ inclusive policies in place
  • LGBTQ+ information on display
  • Gender neutral toilets (where single stall cubicles are available)

We will review policies and practise annually to ensure standards are maintained and support organisations to make any necessary changes.

The benchmark has been designed by Make It Clear with direct input from LGBTQ+ community.

What do Organisations
& schools Say about us?

  • I just wanted to thank the team at Free2b Alliance. You have given us the right support and advice at just the right time. Not having experienced it before it has sometimes been hard to negotiate our way through developing the right approach for a child who is transitioning; your straightforward, sensitive, caring and informative advice has been a life-line. Thank you!

    Jonathan Whitfield, Headteacher, Woodingdean Primary School

  • Wonderful, wonderful training. We all found it really interesting and useful for our roles. There’s an awful lot I didn’t know about the pressures LGBTQ young people face so it was really helpful to think about what children might be going through, even in primary school, and how my role as a teacher can help support them through that. Thank you so much.

    Southmead Primary School

  • Very effective and educational – learning how to support pupils that come out & how to avoid gendered language & stereotypes was particularly useful.

    Raynes Park School
