Trans Awareness and Inclusion Training Workshop

May 17, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm


With an estimated 3000 trans young people in Sheffield alone it is highly likely someone you teach, support or come across in your daily work life will be trans.

SAYiT are very pleased to be able to facilitate this excellent opportunity to learn about supporting trans young people on a nationwide level. The course is aimed at helping to understand the key terms, language, laws, identities and experiences of trans young people. As well as the interaction between trans identities and mental health. It will give you an opportunity to learn how to support trans young people effectively.  This will include improving their mental health. In addition to thinking about how your organisation, and/or your own practice, could be inclusive and supportive.
