More funding will be available to charities non-profit groups focused on tackling homophobic, biphobic and transphobic in schools across the country, the British government announces. Minister for Women and Equalities Penny Mordaunt announced a £1 million extension to a government anti-bullying program which has already been in place for a while, but starting November 5 the new grants made it possible to start the new bidding. The government states that the new program has manty different directions to move in. . Part of it focuses on training teachers on how to spot early signs of bullying and how to intervene appropriately, while another provides teachers with resources to deliver lessons on LGBT+ issues “to ensure all pupils feel accepted and included.” The Government Equalities Office (GEO) has also set up a new fund of £600,000 to local community groups providing services to LGBT people in their local area as well as offering a further £1 million in funding for organisations focusing on improving LGBT+ people’s health and social care
