Multi-Agency Course – Supporting LGBT+ Children & Young People

Date: 12 July 2023 13:00 to 16:00 via MS Teams

This training will focus on some of the issues and challenges experienced by children and young people who are LGBT+ or exploring their sexual orientation and/or gender identity.  Together we will examine how these issues may impact their lives and wellbeing. This session will also allow participants to discuss and reflect on how safeguarding issues relate specifically to LGBT+ children and young people – such as, increased risk of suicide, self-harm, exploitation, missing education etc.


By the end of the training, participants will have:

•         A better understanding of the experiences of LGBT+ people.

•         More confidence in supporting, and being an ally to, LGBT+ people.

•         Knowledge about creating more inclusive environments for LGBT+ people.
