Educational Action Challenging Homophobia

Charity description

Educational Action Challenging Homophobia logo
EACH is the multi award-winning charity which works to affirm the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people and reduce discrimination experienced because of sexual orientation or gender identity.

We provide Helpline support to young people experiencing homophobic or transphobic bullying and deliver training and consultancy to challenge homophobia and transphobia to a range of statutory and voluntary agencies.

Despite welcome legal improvements for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people there are still too many suffering in silence: finding themselves the target of someone else’s prejudice and being emotionally and physically affected.

EACH receives in excess of 600 reports annually of homophobic or transphobic harassment of young people. Our callers
commonly require a sympathetic ear and reassurance regarding
their rights however they also need robust action and advocacy.

Donations to EACH will go towards our Actionline for young people including:
  • One-to-one casework for those experiencing homophobic or transphobic abuse

  • Outreach to youth agencies and schools to raise awareness
    of homophobia and transphobia

  • Training volunteers to become peer supporters to those experiencing homophobia or transphobia


Charity No: 1095665
