Allsorts is proud to be delivering The Rainbow Flag Award to schools and colleges in East Sussex, West Sussex, Kent, Surrey and Hampshire.
The Rainbow Flag Award is a national quality assurance framework for primary schools, secondary schools, SEND schools and colleges. The award focuses on positive LGBT+, (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, plus other related identities), inclusion and visibility. The Rainbow Flag Award encourages a whole organisation approach to LGBT+ inclusion, as well as developing strategies to effectively challenge and combat LGBTphobic bullying.
Committing your school or college to the Rainbow Flag Award is a commitment to improve the lives of all the young people that you work with, including those that are LGBT+, those from LGBT+ families, and LGBT+ staff members.
How does it work?

What does it cost and what is the commitment?

While the Rainbow Flag Award is a national framework, delivery is by LGBT+ organisations working with LGBT+ communities in your local area. Allsorts has over a 20 year history of working with LGBT+ young people in Sussex and the South East. This means that the content of any training will be up to date and relevant, with the needs and experiences of LGBT+ young people from across the area at the heart of delivery. Any monies generated from this scheme will help fund our vital work with LGBT+ young people locally. Not in Sussex or the South East? Find your local Rainbow Flag Award delivery organisation here.
