TRAINING

Do you know your LGBT+ housing?

  • Homophobic harassment.
  • Biphobic harassment.
  • Transphobic harassment.
  • Family breakdown.
  • Domestic abuse.
  • Landlord disputes.
  • Homelessness.
  • Sofa surfing.

It’s all very familiar for us. Every year, over a thousand people phone our advice line and ask for help about their housing. Many live in social housing. Most feel their voices are not heard.

We know LGBT+ housing.

Isn’t it about time you did too?

We provide consultancy, training and workshops to hundreds of organisations, services and housing providers, using the knowledge we’ve gathered from over 35 years of delivering services to lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people.

We recognise that every organisation has different needs, and different levels of knowledge about LGBT+ issues amongst its staff. We will work with you to design a training package that will enable your staff to actively listen, participate, absorb, practice and reflect on the information we provide.

Our bespoke training package includes training on LGBT+ rough sleepers, improving your work with your LGBT+ customers, LGBT+ youth homelessness and many others.

Online learning

We are currently developing an online learning programme.

Charter MarK

Our LGBT+ housing aware charter mark consists of three award levels: gold, silver and bronze.

Organisations are invited to apply for charter mark accreditation. They will need to complete a pre-training questionnaire, a training programme and a post-training assessment six weeks after training.

Organisations are then awarded the Charter Mark if they achieve all their award targets.
