Our LGBTQ+ training packages have been delivered at strategic level and to front-line practitioners nationally.

Our training promotes understanding, inclusivity, and sensitivity which is crucial in creating a more accepting and supportive environment for LGBTQ+ individuals.

We are flexible and will deliver the training both online and in person, tailored to specific organisational needs.

Tracy provides a safe space for open discussion and encourages participants to ask sensitive questions.  She fosters an environment where individuals can learn, grow, and gain a deeper understanding of LGBTQ+ issues without fear of judgment, which can then be fed back at strategic level to enhance policies and procedures. 

If there are any specific details or questions you’d like to explore further or if you need assistance with any related information or resources, we would be happy to help.

The GenderBread Person was something I’d not seen before but found it to be very useful and clear and I think it will help me, going forward.
