As a charity working with young people, we recognise some of our candidates are more vulnerable than others. We also appreciate the pandemic has a greater impact on those of us who face additional challenges on a personal and communal level.
SEO London is extremely proud of all the diverse and brilliant youths we serve regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. Therefore, we are committed to supporting our LGBT+ candidates in overcoming these challenges and to minimise the barriers they pose, particularly to their education and employment. We believe everyone deserves the chance to be who they are and who they truly want to be.
If you are an LGBT+ individual in need of assistance, please refer to the list of signposting services or talk to one of our staff members for additional support. We are here to help!
