Providing LGBT+ safe spaces in schools across Devon and Cornwall

The Open Project aims to enhance the lives of young LGBT+ people across Secondary Schools in Cornwall and Devon (including Plymouth and Torbay) through providing dedicated safe space groups in secondary schools across the two counties. 


Young LGBT+ people urgently need our support. Despite the advances in LGBT+ equality made in recent years, the reality for many pupils is one of bullying, stigma and discrimination. Let’s make school a place where LGBT+ pupils don’t just survive, but thrive.


If your school is interested in being a part of The Open Project, please get in touch:

It's been great having [x] come into the school. We now have a teacher who is delivering in house training to other members of staff as a result of [x] engagement in our school.

We now have an LGBTQ+ support group in school, we had whole school training on intimate relationships and LGBTQ+ issues in January and LGBTQ+ is an important part of our personal development curriculum.

The support we have received from Intercom around our new LGBTQ+ group has been invaluable - thank you!
