What is the Rainbow Flag Award?
he Rainbow Flag Award is a national quality assurance framework for all schools and youth organisations, focusing on positive LGBT+* inclusion and visibility. The Rainbow Flag Award encourages a whole organisation approach to LGBT+ inclusion through a process of action and reflection.
Getting LGBT+ inclusion right is really important, yet the Rainbow Flag Award is not prescriptive, we do not tell you what to do. There is no one way of achieving meaningful LGBT+ inclusion. Through a process of reflection, looking at the needs of your students, staff, and wider communities, you will take actions specific to your school or college.
The Rainbow Flag Award provides training, guidance and support to help a school with this LGBT+ inclusion process. This not only helps a school tackle LGBTphobia, but through positive education, also will inspire and support your students to improve the understanding they have of themselves, of the LGBT+ community and instil a wider commitment to equality and diversity.
