Pride is a time to celebrate our community in all of its diversity, and to highlight work that still needs to be done for full LGBTQ+ equality and inclusion.
In 2019, our School Climate Survey revealed that 73% of LGBTQ+ students feel unsafe at school, with 86% feeling isolated by other students. However, LGBTQ+ young people who felt supported by school staff were 45% more likely to feel accepted by other students.
In partnership with the Teacher’s College at Columbia University, we are launching the survey again this year to find out whether anything has changed in Irish schools, so we can best support LGBTQ+ youth through our training and support services.
The survey is for LGBTQ+ young people attending second-level school or Youthreach, and takes approximately 30 minutes to complete.
We hope that through this research, we will gain insight into LGBTQ+ young people's school experiences, to provide educators, policy makers and LGBTQ+ youth with evidence-based supports.
Together, we can make all schools a safe and supportive space for LGBTQ+ youth.
