At Stonewall, we know how important visible role models can be for lesbian, gay, bi and trans young people. School Role Model visits are a free benefit for all secondary school and college members of the Stonewall School & College Champions programme.
We work with volunteers from different backgrounds, with different jobs and life experiences, who visit schools to tell their story about growing up as an LGBT person.
Due to Covid-19 we're currently unable to book any Stonewall School & College Role Model visits. Stonewall School & College Champion members can access our new Stonewall School & College Role Model videos here.
- A visit usually starts with the role model addressing an assembly
- The role model talks about their experiences of growing up and being LGBT
- Q & A session follows
- Sessions normally last about an hour
- Stonewall School Champions are entitled to one visit per year
School & College Champions
If your school is currently not a School & College Champion and you would like to be, you'll find more information here.

How do I request a role model visit for my school or college?
We are not currently offering in person role model visits due to covid-19. We will update the website once this changes.
What happens next?
Once we receive your request we will contact our school & college role models to check their availability and keep in contact with you in the following weeks to update you on the progress.
