What you can do

Meet our team

Stonewall has a dedicated team that focuses on developing opportunities for young people to get involved in our work. Whether you join us on one of our youth programmes, attend a youth event or engage with us on social media, we want to work with as many of you as possible!

Our aim is to support and empower young LGBTQ people to live their lives free from discrimination and fulfill their potential. We think that young people, whatever their sexual orientation or gender identity, are in a unique position to help influence those around them and to help Stonewall achieve equality and fairness for everyone.

As well as developing and delivering Stonewall's programmes and events for young people, he also manages the youth stream at our annual 'Education for all' conference. Wayne co-wrote Stonewall's coming out guide for young people: 'Coming out! Answers to some of the questions you may have' and also trains teachers to tackle homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying as part of our Primary School Champions and Secondary School Champions programmes.
