LGBT People’s Experiences of Domestic Abuse: Digital Seminar
The LGBT Domestic Abuse Project at LGBT Youth Scotland has been funded by the Scottish Government to deliver a digital event exploring LGBT Peoples’ Experiences of Domestic Abuse.
Our Development Officer, Janice Stevenson, will be delivering a FREE online seminar on:
24th February 2022
10.30am - 12.00pm
1 in 4 LGBT people, and up to 80% of transgender people, experience domestic abuse in their lifetime, but many face significant barriers to reporting abuse and accessing appropriate support.
This 90-minute workshop will support participants to:
- Increase understanding of language and terminology relating to LGBT identities.
- 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.
- 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 to survivors.
No more than two 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 before Wed 16th Feb to express an interest in attending. You will be notified whether you have a space no later than Friday 18th Feb. Please save the date in your diary until then.
Places will be allocated according to sector to ensure a mix of professional disciplines are able to attend. Save the date in your calendar and we will notify you no later than 18th Feb whether you have been allocated a space or placed on the waiting list.
