The LGBT Domestic Abuse Project at LGBT Youth Scotland has been funded by the Scottish Government to provide a targeted multi-agency training on Understanding Transgender Peoples’ Experiences of Domestic Abuse. This FREE full day training course will take place in Edinburgh on 21st May 2019 and will cover:

  • Understanding transgender identities; language and terminology
  • The impact and dynamics of transgender people’s experiences of domestic abuse
  • The nature of homo/bi/transphobia and heterosexism and how these impact on transgender people’s experiences of abuse and services

A light lunch will be provided. Please ensure you tell us about any dietary requirements when you register your interest in attending. The venue will be confirmed when places are allocated.
