Press release: £2.6 million to improve lives of LGBT people

first_img A new fund of £600,000 will also be available to local community groups, through a new LGBT Sector and Community Development Scheme to help them engage LGBT people in their area. Alongside this, these organisations will receive training and development to help them grow, mature and become more sustainable over time. The money will be used to provide training for teachers on how to spot early signs of bullying and how to intervene appropriately. It will also be used to provide resources to support teachers in delivering lessons on LGBT issues to ensure all pupils feel accepted and included.The Government Equalities Office has already delivered the anti-bullying programme in 1,200 schools in England – ahead of its March deadline – and is now inviting voluntary and charitable organisations to bid for £1 million of further grant funding to roll out the programme in more schools.A further £1 million will also be available for organisations to improve LGBT people’s health and social care. The LGBT Survey found that at least 16% of survey respondents who accessed or tried to access healthcare services in the last year had a negative experience because of their sexual orientation, and over half of those surveyed who accessed or tried to access mental health services said they had to wait too long.Minister for Women and Equalities Penny Mordaunt said:“Everyone in this country should feel safe and happy to be who they are, to love who they love, and to live their lives without judgement or fear.“That’s why this government is stepping up its work to tackle bullying in schools, to protect more children and to stop hatred from festering and growing into discrimination in adulthood.“The aim of our Action Plan is that everyone can live safe, happy and healthy lives where they can be themselves without fear of discrimination.”Today, Ms Mordaunt also announced: An LGBT Advisory Panel to advise the Government on policy, act as a sounding board, and provide evidence on the experiences of LGBT people. Stonewall, the LGBT Consortium and the LGBT Foundation have already been appointed to the panel given their longstanding, wide-ranging work on LGBT equality. A further nine members will be recruited through an open process that launches this week.center_img The LGBT Action Plan, launched in July 2018, made 75 commitments to tackle discrimination and improve the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people in the UK. It was published alongside the results of the largest national survey of LGBT people ever undertaken. The survey, which had over 108,000 respondents, shows LGBT people are experiencing prejudice on a daily basis.NOTES TO EDITORS:The LGBT survey was launched in July 2017.The LGBT Action Plan can be found hereThe Advisory Panel recruitment will launch this Sunday 4 November.The grant funding will launch during the week of Monday 5 November.last_img read more

PREMIUMBeauty and success: How industries favor good looks

first_img“When I wore flats instead of heels, it got reported in the news. My pearls, my belts, my cardigans, my off-the-rack dresses from J. Crew, my apparently brave choice of white for an inaugural gown — all seemed to trigger a slew of opinions and instant feedback […] It seemed that my clothes mattered more to people than anything I had to say,” Michelle Obama wrote in her book, Becoming, addressing that her looks had been the subject of people’s scrutiny while Barack Obama could easily “pull the same dark suit out of his closet and head off to work without even needing a comb”. An extent of that double standard is something common faced by women when they enter the workforce. Women had to come to terms with a reality where their looks are as important, if not more, as their competence. Riska, not her real name, a young professional who… Log in with your social account Topics : LOG INDon’t have an account?
