Aberdeen City Council, Education and Children’s Services are part of the Stonewall Education Champions programme and this year completed a survey to benchmark how they support children and young people in our schools and communities who are Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Transgender (LGBT) or friends and families of those who are LGBT.
As part of the Education Champions programme they have access to a number of resources to support parents who want to learn about LGBT issues. These can be found by accessing the following links:
