Our aim is to help support your LGBT+ staff, service users, volunteers, friends and family and communicate a clear message of inclusivity. Our LGBT+ Awareness training sessions help individuals and organisations to better support LGBT+ clients.
As well as our standard training outline, we tailor and develop sessions to meet the particular needs of you and your team.
Our sessions aim to give you a better understanding of:
- Sex and Gender 101
- Understanding LGBT+ terminology
- Legal Responsibilities
- Microaggressions and Stereotypes
- Impact of the challenges LGBT+ people face
- Transgender Identities
- How to make your workplace more LGBT+ inclusive
Training is suitable for mixed levels of knowledge on this topic, from beginner to intermediate.
We provide a confidential and non-judgemental space where you and your colleagues can ask the questions you feel are most relevant to your working practices and have them answered in full.
For experts seeking more specific training, we can run more in-depth topics on request, such as:
- Improving Mental Health and Wellbeing for LGBT+ Communities
- Clinical Practice and Primary Care for Transgender Individuals
- Supporting LGBT+ Children and Young People
- LGBT+ Hate Crime
At the heart of our trainings is a sincere desire to help you support LGBT+ people and raise your confidence levels. We want to work together to serve our community, so let us know what aspects of our expertise you feel you would benefit from most. All participants are awarded a certificate from us on completion of their training session.
Training lengths vary between 1.5 hours and 4 hours (over a couple of sessions) depending on your needs. Due to COVID-19 our training is being provide via Zoom until further notice.
