Event Details

Do you know what "intersectional" means?


Are you aware of your intersectional service users? 


What are you doing to include intersectional people in your services? 


Intersectional people belong simultaneously in more than one disadvantaged group or have more than one protected characteristic. Eg: Bisexual AND African or Transgender AND disabled. 

We can have unique complex needs and face particular barriers when accessing services. Eg: homophobic interpreters.   


This FREE interactive half day training session for service providers gives an introduction to intersectionality and offers a unique opportunity to explore practical ways to provide better services for intersectional people.  


Previous attendees have said: 


“The best things were the diversity of issues raised and the detailed, practical suggestions for positive change.”


“I am full of new ideas and enthusiasm”


“I laughed, cried and learnt so much; all in one morning”
