We are a dynamic charity whose vision is a world where everyone embraces diversity and can thrive. Our mission is to promote understanding and acceptance of individual differences and end LGBTQ+ bullying in schools.

DfE Funded Embracing Difference, Ending Bullying Project

Diversity Role Models was selected by the Department for Education to deliver a programme which empowers England schools to take a stand against all forms of bullying, with training interventions and resources to ensure staff have the knowledge and skills to tackle and prevent bullying and create inclusive school cultures.

NEW Upstander Animation Series Resources

Prompting young people to ‘Pause, Rethink, Rewind, Be Kind’, these brand NEW animated short videos have been especially designed for Primary School classrooms. Each animation has an accompanying resource pack, filled with top tips and exciting lesson ideas to encourage young viewers to be an ‘ally against unkindness.’

Education services

Find out about the services we offer to help schools to become more LGBTQ+ inclusive, including our primary and secondary student workshops, staff and governor training, and parent and carer sessions.


Volunteers are at the heart of everything that we do. Whether you want to volunteer in school as a role model or facilitator, help out in the office, or lend us your professional skills, there are numerous ways you can help change a student's life.
