LGBTQ Domestic Abuse Training

LGBTQ Domestic Abuse Training

This workshop is based upon our experiences, knowledge and expertise as LGBTQ+ domestic abuse practitioners.  Domestic abuse is a pervasive issue for LGBTQ+ people and our communities, and intersects with people’s experiences of race and racism, queerness, and disability.  Our service centres the needs and voices of the survivors we work with. This training has been developed to use this experience to educate professionals interested in developing their practice and working in a trauma-informed way with survivors.

The training will cover

  • To understand what domestic abuse is
  • To know what forms domestic abuse can take and feel confident in identifying domestic abuse
  • Knowing how domestic abuse can impact the LGBTQ+ community and what you can do to help
  • Getting to grips with the barriers that LGBTQ+ survivors may face when coming forward to get support.

This training is designed for frontline workers across all sectors working within the city, and professionals who want to increase their knowledge and inclusion of LGBTQ+ people. Some previous knowledge of LGBTQ+ identities is preferable, but not essential. 

We can adapt this training based on the group, so please get in touch for a conversation.
