This free training aims to increase your understanding and support in the development of culturally appropriate services for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer (LGBTIQ) people, with special reference to working with trans and gender diverse people.
This session is targeted at NWMPHN TPS and ISS providers who would like to increase their knowledge and skills working with trans and gender diverse people. There will also be the opportunity to reinforce how to practice more effectively with the LGBTIQ community.

The session is a mix of interactive activities, discussion and tips delivered in a safe and non-judgmental environment by people who have lived LGBTIQ experience.
