Event description

Description

METRO Charity provides health, community and youth services across London and the South East, and our Anti-Bullying Project works with staff, students and parents in over 300 schools.

We are inviting parents/carers to attend a free day of workshops, discussions, and talks. We will discuss ways to support young people with their gender identity and sexual orientation and offer support and information for their families. Refreshments will be provided.


The day will provide:

- a supportive environment where you can seek advice

- workshops on gender identity, sexual orientation, and how to support young people

- workshops to support whole families with the coming out process

- an opportunity to meet other parents/carers and share experiences

- the chance to meet with young LGBT+ people from METRO's Youth Groups and hear about their experiences

- more information on METRO Charity, the work they do in schools, and how they can offer further support to you and your family

- the chance to talk one to one with members of our team, who are all experts in supporting young people with their gender and sexuality


We will start with a general presentation and discussion, and attendees will then have the opportunity to choose from a selection of different workshops.



Please note that this is a space for parents, carers, and relatives of young people. We do not recommend that young people themselves attend this event. For more support and events for young people please see the Youth section of our website.


As a result of taking part in the conference, you will receive a certificate that, should you wish, can be shown to employers as proof of Continued Professional Development.

If you would like more information, feel free to give us a ring on 020 8305 5000, or email niazy@metrocharity.org.uk.
