LGB and T+ Awareness


This session explores various established and emerging gender and sexually diverse identities. We look at the needs of the community/ies and the impact of wider societal issues. We also look at the effect of other identities and influences that impact on LGB and T+lives both individually and collectively.

This session encourages us all to reflect on our own assumptions around gender and sexuality and consider how this may impact on the work we do. This session aims to develop practitioners skills, knowledge and confidence around gender and sexuality in order to support others effectively.

Supporting young people who are gender and sexually diverse (LGB and T+).


More and more young people are coming out as lesser known terms such as asexual, a-romantic, a-gender and non-binary. This session will explore these identities alongside more established identities such as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans. We’ll take a look at how gender and sexuality interact and impact on a child’s identity and experiences. We’ll consider how external influences such as peers, family and the media feature in the child’s identity formation with a look a developmental stages such as adolescence.

This session aims to improve practitioners ability and confidence in supporting young people who are questioning their gender identity or asserting a new gender or sexual identity.

Working with loved ones when a partner or child comes out/transitions.


When someone comes out/transitions it can take some psychological adjustment for a parent/carer/partner. For some people this adjustment can be challenging and interfere with their ability to support their LGB and T+ loved one. The changes their loved one is going through may create challenge for the parent/carer/partner around their own identity and belief system.

This session looks at this area, exploring the process of change and the impact of cultural and societal factors.

Same Day Response (Mon – Fri, 9am – 5pm)

Working effectively with adults and children who are gender diverse.


Due to increased societal visibility, practitioners are likely to work with, or already be working with, someone who is trans or is questioning their gender identity. We shall explore together the needs of both adults and children expressing gender diversity. We’ll look at our assumptions and expectations around gender and how these may impact on our work.

This session will suggest new ways of thinking around gender that enable us to support both adults and children who are gender diverse effectively.
