"No Outsiders is a 28-month research project based in primary schools and funded by The Economic and Social Research Council. The project is led by Elizabeth Atkinson and Renée DePalma at the University of Sunderland, in collaboration with researchers at the University of Exeter and the Institute of Education (University of London) and a team of three research assistants. During the course of the project, a team of primary teachers from three areas of the UK will develop ideas and resources to address lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality in their own schools and their communities. The outcomes will be disseminated via the Teacher Training Resource Bank, a documentary film and an edited book of teaching ideas. The project started on 1 September 2006 and will run until 31 December 2008. We have a full complement of participants for the current year (September 2006 to July 2007) and are now recruiting participants for the second year of the project (September 2007 to July 2008)"
