Training: LGBT People’s Experiences of Domestic Abuse

The LGBT Domestic Abuse Project at LGBT Youth Scotland has been funded by the Scottish Government to deliver a digital seminar exploring LGBT People’s Experiences of Domestic Abuse.

Our Development Officer, Janice Stevenson, will be delivering an online presentation on Tuesday 26th January 2021, using Microsoft Teams.

1 in 4 LGBT people experience domestic abuse in their lifetime, but many face significant barriers to reporting abuse and accessing appropriate support. This 90-minute workshop will allow participants to:

  • Reflect on the nature of homo/bi/transphobia and consider how this impacts on LGBT people’s experience of domestic abuse
  • Understand the impact and dynamics of LGBT people’s experiences of domestic abuse
  • Reflect on the nature of homo/bi/transphobia and heterosexism and consider how this impacts on LGBT people’s access to support service.
  • Develop and understanding of LGBT inclusive practices within services

We are particularly keen to engage front-line workers in public services such as Health, Housing, Policing and the criminal justice system and social work, as well as third sector organisations that provide support, advice or information.

No more than 2 people from any one organisation may take part and spaces will be allocated to ensure a broad range of organisations are able to take part.

Please complete our online form to express an interest in attending. Places will be allocated according to sector to ensure a mix of professional disciplines are able to attend. You will be notified whether you have a space no later than Monday 18th January. Please save the date in your diary until then.
