It is vital that staff and volunteers working with young people are able to create safe and inclusive spaces for young people who are LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bi, trans, queer and questioning). Shaped by young people and Youth Cymru’s expertise in LGBTQ+ youth work, the course provides insight into the identities and experiences of young people who are LGBTQ+. Through group discussions and activities, it explores and promotes best practice, in a safe and supportive learning environment.

  • Become more confident in identifying and using appropriate language about sexual orientation and gender identity
  • Identify the discrimination experienced by LGBTQ+ young people
  • Gain skills and knowledge in supporting LGBTQ+ young people and eliminating barriers and discrimination
  • Be able to signpost to appropriate support and information services
  • Identify actions on how to strengthen LGBTQ+ inclusion within your workplace
