Pride Groups in action at a secondary school

What is a Pride Group? And why join Just Like Us’ Pride Groups programme?

Watch our video and hear from SLT, headteachers, teaching staff and school pupils about how the Pride Groups programme has benefited their school communities.

What is a Pride Group?

A Pride Group is a lunchtime or after school club that provides a safe place for LGBT+ and ally young people to meet, learn and get support.

Pride Groups are social, educational and supportive. They help transform school culture by ensuring there is always a safe, inclusive place where LGBT+, questioning and ally pupils can be themselves.

Why join the Pride Groups programme?

Just Like Us is the LGBT+ young people’s charity. We run the Pride Groups programme for secondary schools across the UK to set up and/or run a Pride Group.

The programme is ideal for both total beginners and schools that have some form of group that they’d like to develop further.

It’s also fantastic for developing opportunities for student voice.

We provide online training for staff and Student Leaders as well as start-up support, and resources that you can use each session – including ice breakers, discussion topics and longer-term projects that pupils can get stuck into.
