Supporting LGBTQ+ Young People

Stonewall Young Futures has been developed with LGBTQ+ young people in response to our research on the experiences of LGBTQ+ young people not in education, training or work.

This area of the platform provides support and resources for:

  • Anyone working directly with young people in a wide range of settings, including schools, colleges, social work, healthcare, youth groups or job centres
  • Education and training providers
  • Employers and apprenticeship providers
  • You can also subscribe to our Stonewall Young Futures mailing list to make sure you’re the first to hear about new content and opportunities to get involved
Subscribe to the Stonewall Young Futures newsletter

We need your consent to send you our Stonewall Young Futures newsletter. You can subscribe whether you're an LGBTQ+ young person or you work with and support LGBTQ+ young people. You’ll be the first to discover new content and opportunities and we’ll also be in touch with opportunities to get involved, share your story, and give us your feedback.

This research uncovers the profound impact that LGBT-specific factors (including family rejection and anti-LGBT bullying), on top of wider challenges (such as limited career support, caring responsibilities and managing disabilities), can have on LGBT young people’s mental health and their engagement with education, training and employment – and how these can limit their life chances.
