Who can take part?

OutRight is a campaign by children and young people, for children and young people.

Any school, youth club and organisation or home schooler in the UK can take part! 

When does OutRight take place?

Groups can participate in activities at any time during the year and we hope that makes it even easier for children and young people to get involved and use their voices. We will share the first resources in mid August 2022.

Five young people sit around a table working with pens and paper.

Children and young people of all ages can take part in OutRight.
