Cara-Friend, as part of LGBT Awareness Week 2016, are delivering an evening of training for professionals and volunteers who work with young people, particularly those in schools and youth clubs. The session, entitled ‘Educating the Educators’ will be delivered in the Belfast LGBT Centre, 9-13 Waring Street, on Thursday May 19th from 6.00pm-8.30pm. The session’s aim is to provide an overview of issues faced by LGBT young people, and how to respond appropriately and sensitively.

We will cover issues such as dealing with homophobic and transphobic bullying; how best to talk about LGBT issues in RSE, basic terminology and problems around identifying as LGBT, and the specific mental health needs of LGBT+ young people. We will also provide a question and answers session so that attendees can bring up specific scenarios that they need advice or help with. There will also be a section of the workshop dedicated to raising awareness around transgender issues, and what best practice is in terms of accommodating young people who do not identify with the gender assigned them at birth.

Tea, coffee and a light bite will be provided for those attending the workshop.

Places are limited so please contact Declan Meehan to book a place on declan.meehan@cara-friend.org.uk or complete the contact form below.
