Stand Up Resources
Stand Up Awareness week addresses homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying in second-level schools and youth services by encouraging friendship and positive understanding of LGBTI+ young people. This year, Stand Up Awareness Week takes place from November 11th-15th.
Each year we send resource packs to second-level schools and youth services around Ireland. You can download the 2019 resources below so that your school can take part:
