Event description
LGBT+ Awareness Training

About this event

For staff working or volunteering in Health & Social Care, voluntary sectors and related services in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin, Herefordshire & Worcestershire.

This LGBT+ awareness raising course has a specific focus on issues impacting on LGBT+ people as we age. It provides a safe space for people to explore and discuss issues relating to creating safe, inclusive and welcoming environments for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) people, in particular focusing on older and old LGBT people.

By the end of the session, participants will:

• Be familiar with a range of terminology applying to sexual orientation and gender identity

• Have an awareness of the types of lived experiences of older and old LGBT+ people

• Understand and be able to identify some of the ways in which prejudice and discrimination may be directed towards and felt by people of differing sexual orientations or gender identities

• Understand how discrimination and prejudice, both deliberate and inadvertent, can impact on LGBT+ people

• Understand why it is important to proactively consider how to create more inclusive environments

Some Terms:

  • Only 2 places per organisation per course please
  • If you need an invoice before payment please contact us
  • Places are limited

We are unable to offer refunds. We can, however accept a colleague in your place or transfer you to a future course if you are unable to attend if you give us 48 hrs notice.
