LGBTQ+ Awareness Training & Workshops

For Adults Working with Young People

We can tailor our training and workshops to the needs of any organisation. However below are examples of the types of the training sessions we offer:

Supporting LGBTQ+ Children & Young People

This training will explore the issues and challenges that Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, or those who are unsure of their sexual orientation or gender identity, children and young people face, how their mental health & wellbeing are impacted by these challenges, and how best to support them.
We will learn ways to make our services safer and more LGBTQ+ inclusive by exploring ways of identifying and challenging homophobia, biphobia and transphobia at home, school, college or work.  Although trans/gender identity issues will be covers in this session, the emphasis of this course is more broadly aimed at the whole LGBTQ+ community, due to the fact we run a separate course on gender identity and trans issues, detailed below.
