Last week, our Community Youth Club team took part in LGBTQ+ training.
The LGBTQ+ training was delivered to our staff at Ashton Vale Club for Young People by Off The Record – a mental health social movement for young people aged 11-25.
During the training, the team looked at the importance of identity and pronouns, initial perceptions when you first meet people and assumptions that could be made.
This training was beneficial for our team and helped them to gain confidence when engaging in conversations with young people around this topic. The group even looked at some scenarios and how they would safely and appropriately approach each situation.
Thank you Off The Record for delivering an amazing session of LGBTQ+ training. It was great for the team to get together and discuss the topic and how they can apply this training in our Community Youth Clubs.
