Stonewall works to achieve equality and justice for lesbians, gay men, bisexual and trans people. We do this in a number of different ways:
Carrying out research, publishing briefings and working with government, trade unions, business, NGOs and policy institutions to develop ideas and policy that remove discrimination and improve the lives of lesbians, gay men, bisexual and transexual people.
Cultural and attitudinal change
Challenging the underlying cultural and attitudinal values that allow discrimination to flourish. Changing cultures and attitudes to positively value diversity.
Lobbying for legal change
Campaigning to ensure that legislation is non-discriminatory and that the diversity and value of LGBT life is appropriately recognised in our own laws.
Well-informed individuals and institutions are better able to recognise how rights and responsibilities should be exercised.
Good practice design and advice
Working on a range of issues from homophobic bullying to employment practice and pension provision to disseminating and promoting good practice.
Our offices in Scotland and Wales (both north and south) ensure that our work is developed in ways that respond to local as well as national needs. Staff in these offices also work alongside local projects to develop LGBT community infrastructures.
This demanding agenda is taken forward by a highly committed staff team, supported by a large, loyal and dedicated team of volunteers.
