Recognition for NYCC

Stonewall, Britain’s lesbian, gay, bi and trans equality charity, has named NYCC as one of the best local authorities in Britain for tackling homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying and celebrating difference in its schools according to their recently published Education Equality Index.

NYCC has taken great strides forward in addressing homophobia, biphobia and transphobia in schools and supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) young people in their local community, particularly through the provision of guidance and self-evaluation tools.  

The council continuously ensures that the needs of LGBT young people are taken into account. Specifically, the Growing Up in North Yorkshire 2014 survey demonstrated statistically significant different results for LGBT students in key indicators such as bullying, emotional health and wellbeing and engagement in risky behaviours when compared with the population as a whole.
