On Tuesday February 13 as part of LGBTQ history month, Barnardo’s Healthy Identities is hosting training around LGBTQ awareness for health and voluntary professionals across Calderdale.
This half day training course will introduce participants to key themes around sexual and gender identity, and will explore:
– Ideas and assumptions around gender and sexuality
– Key terms and concepts
– The Equality Act and discrimination
– Experiences of young LGBTQ people, particularly relating to health
– Ways to support and care for young LGBTQ people
This will also be an opportunity to learn more about the work of Healthy Identities with a possibility of exploring partnership opportunities.
