Stonewall was founded on 24 May 1989, one year to the day since Section 28 became law.
Section 28 was a piece of legislation that banned the ‘promotion of homosexuality’ by schools and councils across the UK, and led to a total suppression of LGBTQ+ identities in schools.
We’ve spent the past 30 years working towards a world where all children and young people have access to an LGBTQ-inclusive education. We have travelled a path from Section 28, to every child in most of the UK learning about our lives, families and relationships as part of the national curriculum.
Our experienced team are proud to have supported many primary and secondary schools, Local Authorities and Multi Academy Trusts to challenge bullying and celebrate diversity.
Using our years of experience in training education staff, we’ve developed a series of CPD accredited e-learning courses which will equip you with the skills and knowledge to support LGBTQ+ children and young people, as well as helping you to become an LGBTQ-inclusive setting.

"This training has increased my knowledge of how to support and how to access further resources to help me support the LGBT community within my school. I believe that all of the activities have helped to increase and cement my knowledge and would be extremely useful to all my colleagues."
