How we work

Stonewall Scotland works to achieve equality and justice for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. We do this in a number of different ways:

Policy development

Carrying out research, publishing briefings and working with government, trade unions, business, NGOs and policy institutions to develop ideas and policy that remove discrimination and improve the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender 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 LGBT 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.
