Allsorts: ‘Understanding and Supporting LGBTU+¬†Children &¬†Young People’

August 4, 2020

Allsorts Youth Project has revealed August and September dates of their training course, Understanding and Supporting LGBTU+ Children & Young People, which will explore the issues and challenges LGBTQU+ children and young people face, how their mental health and wellbeing are impacted by these challenges, and how best to support them.

During the course, you will learn ways to make services safer and more LGBTQ+ inclusive by exploring ways of identifying and challenging homophobia, biphobia and transphobia at home, school, college or work. Although trans/gender identity issues will be covered in this session, the emphasis of this course is more broadly aimed at the whole LGBTQ+ community, due to the fact Allsorts run a separate course on gender identity and trans issues.

Benefits and Learning Outcomes:

  • Explore the challenges faced by LGBTU+ children and young people and the impact of these on their mental health and emotional wellbeing.
  • Examine current LGBTU+ terminology and explore common myths about LGBTU+.
  • Examine relevant legislation and how this applies to organisations providing services.
  • Explore how to identify and challenge homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying, insults and language.
  • Examine how to create an LGBTQ+ inclusive and safer-space environment.

This training course has two different options to suit your time, budget, and training needs. The core content will be the same in both sessions, however, the longer session will go into much more depth and leave more time for questions and answers.

1.5-Hour Session: This session is aimed at people who feel they already have a reasonable knowledge and confidence in understanding and supporting LGBTU+ young people, but would like to check their knowledge is up to date. This session will have a Q&A with the Allsorts trainer and an LGBTU+ young person.

3-Hour Session:
This session is aimed at people who want to significantly increase their knowledge and confidence in understanding and supporting LGBTU+ young people. You will explore issues in much greater depth, and there will be a Q&A with the Allsorts trainer and an LGBTU+ young person.
