Prouder Communities – Offer of Free LGBTQ Awareness Training for Third Sector Organisations

Prouder Communities is funded by the National Lottery through the Big Lottery Fund and Barnardo’s. Prouder Communities meets the specific needs of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans children and young people, along with those questioning their gender or sexual identity (LGBTQ).

They help members of the community to shape school and community environments where homophobic, biphobic and transphobic (HBT) bullying has no place.

Prouder Communities are able to offer workshops free of charge on LGBTQ awareness for staff, volunteers and service users of third sector organisations. During these sessions they can cover the basics of gender and sexual identity and talk about appropriate language and terminology.

They can discuss people’s rights and responsibilities under equality and anti-discrimination legislation. They can also offer guidance on best practice when supporting LGBTQ people.

The training can be tailored to your organisation’s needs, and they can discuss prior to the training how the topic of LGBTQ can be applied to organisations working with people with learning difficulties, physical and sensory impairments or mental health needs.
