Our workshops and assemblies for children and young people can be
tailored to the needs of any school, college or youth organisation.
Our approach is to facilitate open, honest and informed conversations, supported by teachers, to help children and young people develop their understanding and respect for the diversity of their communities, and to leave them feeling more confident when engaging in conversations about these subjects. Our workshops are delivered in an accessible and age-appropriate manner, and we continually work collaboratively with teachers, school leaders and the local authority to ensure the content is appropriate and current – and that required delivery standards are always met.
Understanding and Supporting LGBT+ Peers
Our workshops and assemblies for children and young people explore, in age-appropriate language, some of the critical issues and challenges experienced by children and young people who are Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans or in the process of exploring their sexual orientation and/or gender identity (LGBT+). Together we will examine how these issues may impact them and their emotional and social wellbeing.

LGBT+ Peer Educators
As part of our LGBT+ youth volunteering programme, we have trained a group of LGBT+ Youth Peer-Educators who are available (subject to availability) to support the facilitation of workshops/assemblies and speak about their own experiences and issues they faced growing up as LGBT+.
"I was so impressed by the way you created such a safe learning environment; enabled the children to explore key learning about difference; identity and LGBT identity and prejudice as well as challenging assumptions and sharing personal experiences so meaningfully. It was a privilege to be a part of this learning"

"Allsorts is a truly outstanding organisation in every sense. Their pioneering staff have sensitively and skilfully reached out to schools and the local communities over the last 20 years and are making a tangible difference in shaping attitudes towards the LGBTQ community. People in schools now talk openly about LGBTQ issues and 20 years ago they did not. At Roedean we are immensely proud to support the Allsorts mission to make Brighton and Hove a community where all LGBTQ young people can feel safe, valued and accepted."
