Just Like Us
LGBT+ school pupils are twice as likely to be bullied. Our LGBT+ ambassadors help change that, by volunteering to speak in schools about growing up LGBT+ and the importance of allyship. Every young person should know that being LGBT+ is something to be celebrated, and that's what we aim to do with the help of our LGBT+ ambassadors!
ABOUT US: 

Just Like Us is the LGBT+ young people's charity, and we work to make life awesome for LGBT+ young people in UK schools. Our network of LGBT+ young adult ambassadors are trained to share their experiences by speaking in local schools, giving hope to LGBT+ kids and inspiring all young people to be allies.

WHY OUR WORK MATTERS: 

LGBT+ school pupils are twice as likely to be bullied. Our LGBT+ ambassadors help change that, by volunteering to speak in schools about growing up LGBT+ and the importance of allyship.
