Here for Youth

Stand Up Week

It’s Stand Up Awareness Week! Running from November 15-19th, 2021.

What is Stand Up Awareness Week?

Stand Up Awareness Week is a time for second-level schools, youth services, and Youthreach in Ireland to join us and take a stand against homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying. This week is an opportunity to take steps to make spaces safe and supportive for LGBTI+ young people. We will equip you with the resources, tools, and knowledge needed to host Stand Up Awareness Week in your school, youth service, or Youthreach this November.

It is heart-breaking that one in five young LGBTI+ people face bullying and that 73% of young LGBTI+ students feel unsafe at school. Together we can create spaces where LGBTI+ young people feel safe, equal, and valued

Our Chillout LGBTQI+ Youth Worker Debbie has been out and about this week at schools across the county to raise the flag 🙂
