Classroom sessions and assemblies

We offer education and classroom sessions for young people which are suitable for PSHE lessons, Respect/Anti Bullying Week programmes or via young people’s organisations.

  • HIV Awareness
  • STIs and Sexual Health
  • Gender and Sexual Diversity (LGBT+ Awareness)
  • Stopping HBT Bullying and supporting your LGBT+ friends

We also deliver age-appropriate assemblies for all year groups covering the below topics:

  • Stopping Homophobic, Biphobic and Transphobic Bullying
  • What is Trans?
  • LGBT+ Pride
  • HIV Awareness

These sessions are free of charge to Sheffield schools, but we encourage early bookings to guarantee our involvement as we have limited capacity.

Gender and Sexuality Alliance Group

A GSA is a gender and sexuality alliance group, which is a student lead group of individuals who aim to work towards an accepting environment for all people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. The group isn’t just for people who identify as LGBT+ but anyone who believes in equality and LGBT+ rights.

We can support you to set up a GSA in school and offer ongoing support.

“It was clear to me that your commitment to this vulnerable group is already changing the local landscape and will affect the lives of young people who have been so damaged and neglected, so thank you for making this issue impossible to ignore.”

Our involvement is free of charge, but we encourage early booking as we have limited capacity.

We are pleased to be able to deliver the majority of our schools offer for free. However, as a small charity, donations towards the running costs of our work make a huge difference to us. If you would like to donate you can do so at or by clicking on our ‘Donate’ button at the top of the page.

To make a booking or to discuss any ideas for a bespoke session for your school or organisation please email Hannah Greenslade at
