Just Like Us

Just Like Us was founded for a simple reason: growing up LGBT+ is still unacceptably tough. To change this, we run the following programmes:

Our Ambassador Programme is a volunteering opportunity for LGBT+ young people aged 18-25 across England and Wales. We support them to use their voice in schools and in the media, to develop their skills and to find a sense of community.

Schools in England and Wales can also book a talk from our ambassadors, LGBT+ young people aged 18-25. Visiting schools in person or through an online platform, they educate on LGBT+ terminology, share their experiences and talk about allyship.

School Diversity Week is our annual celebration every June of LGBT+ inclusion within education. Reaching over 5,000 primary and secondary schools across England and Wales, the aim is to help schools to engage with LGBT+ inclusive education.

The Pride Groups programme aims to create safe and fun spaces for LGBT+ young people and their allies to come together and enjoy their time together at school. We support groups across the country by providing fortnightly educational resources, termly training and facilitate the sharing of best practice amongst a community of like minded educators.

Each of our programmes can be delivered in-person or remotely.

Our work has been recognised externally through a number of awards. These include winning a Business Charity Award and PinkNews Community Group of the Year award, as well as being runner up for a Third Sector Awards ‘Small Charity, Big Achiever’ Award and continue to produce research into the lives of young LGBT+ people, such as our 2020 Growing Up LGBT+ report found on our website.
