Suzy Lamplugh Trust regards personal safety as a life skill.  That is why we are proud to work with City Bridge Trust and other organisations to reach young people and support them in being safer and feeling safer.

Reducing Fear and Living Confidently

Created by Linnéa Haviland

Suzy Lamplugh Trust, Galop and Gendered Intelligence believe that everyone has the right to live their lives safely and confidently.

Reducing Fear, Living Confidently’ is a project part-funded by City Bridge Trust for the LGBT community, informed by the LGBT community, which aims to help participants be and feel safer.

The Hate Crime Report produced by Galop in 2013 found that a quarter of reported homophobic crimes and a fifth of transphobic reported crimes happen in London: 1 in 8 LGBT Londoners experience hate crime each year. 

Suzy Lamplugh Trust, Galop and Gendered Intelligence believe that no-one should feel forced to change their behaviour, or try to alter who they are in order to try to reduce the risk of experiencing violence and aggression. We want to give LGBT individuals who have experienced hate crime or are fearful of experiencing hate crime training in the tools, techniques and strategies they can use to help them live their life as safely and confidently as possible without the need to try to alter what they wear, where they go or who they are socialising with.

Suzy Lamplugh Trust are grateful for the funding received from City Bridge Trust to enable us to undertake this project.
