Stonewall works to achieve equality and justice for lesbians, gay men and bisexual people.
They achieve this in a number of different ways:
- Policy development
Carrying out research, publishing briefings to develop ideas and policy that remove discrimination and improve the lives of lesbians, gay men and bisexual 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 LGB life is appropriately recognised in our own laws.
- Providing information
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.
