Very professional and educational training. I feel more aware of LGBT issues. I Would definitely recommend this training to others

A friendly informative session highlighting issues faced by the LGBT+ community – recommended!

Facilitator Training

A supported training programme where Facilitators work with SAND to be able to deliver LGBT+ Awareness Training and facilitate conversations within their own organisations, and to others.

This course is open to staff and volunteers of organisations signed up to the Covenant, takes place over a 12 week period in Autumn 2023, with 3 Zoom sessions and 3 Face-to-Face sessions. Dates and Price TBC.

Previous participants say:

The discussion activities were brilliant, especially when in small groups, and speaking to others from other organisations. The tasks set were thoughtful, to the point and allowed for valid, open discussion.

The training was amazing, informative and fun. I looked forward to every session, I really didn’t want it to end – but now it’s time to get the work out there!
