The Rainbow Flag Award is a national quality assurance framework for all schools and youth-centred organisations. The award focuses on positive LGBT+, (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, plus other related identities), inclusion and visibility.
The Rainbow Flag Award encourages a whole organisation approach to LGBT+ inclusion, as well as developing strategies to effectively challenge and combat LGBTphobic bullying.
Committing your school or organisation to the Rainbow Flag Award is a commitment to improve the lives of all the young people that you work with, as well as the LGBT+ young people in your care, those from LGBT+ families, and LGBT+ staff members.
THE RAINBOW FLAG AWARD IS NOT PRESCRIPTIVE, WE DO NOT TELL YOU WHAT TO DO…
Instead, we help you self-identify and self-determine which are the most appropriate ways to implement positive LGBT+ inclusion in your settings, that best compliments your staff, your young people and your wider communities.
Through a year-long process of self-assessment and ongoing monitoring and feedback, schools and youth organisations have access to a variety of resources and interventions, helping them meet set standards in their own way.

The Rainbow Flag Award is a national framework, that utilises only local LGBT+ youth organisations as delivery partners. This is a core guiding value of the award, which means that the training and services that are provided are relevant to, have understanding of, local communities and their needs. It also means that information shared through training and other communications, is current and fresh, representing the actual everyday experiences of LGBT+ young people in the local area.
Any monies generated by this scheme then help support, often underfunded, LGBT+ youth provision locally.
