LGBTQ Partnership Group Launch @ The Elsie Whiteley Innovation Centre | England | United Kingdom

Barnardo’s Calderdale Positive Identities Service invites you to join our launch event on Friday 14th September 2018 at The Elsie Whitely Centre from 1.00pm until 4.00pm.

The Project increases awareness of challenges LGBTQ young people may face, such as bullying and discrimination in schools, organisations, groups and communities across the authority. We would like to explore the duty of care professionals have towards LGBTQ young people. We want to increase levels of understanding, and make our services accessible in a sustainable way by:

  • Working with young people in the community and in primary schools.

  • Supporting services and organisations to understand the importance of ensuring accessibility.

  • Training community members and multiagency professionals.

  • Improve the quality of service.

We would like to work in partnership with you. The event aims to create a CALDERDALE LGBTQ PARTNERSHIP GROUP, making Calderdale the best borough in the North for LGBTQ young people, their families and communities.

We will:

  • Look at the work Barnardo’s and partners have done in Calderdale to support LGBTQ communities;

  • Look at the LGBTQ Action Plan released by the Government Equalities Office in July 2018;

  • Invite Clinical Commissioning Group EDI Lead, Kate Bell, to discuss the EDI equality objectives;

  • Discuss our vision to make Calderdale the best borough in the North for LGBTQ young people, their families and communities.

By attending you can:

  • Take part in creating and shaping together the Calderdale LGBTQ Partnership Group;

  • Network with other organisations and share learning;

  • Improve accessibility of services for young people who identify as LGBTQ by accessing free training;

  • Plan co-delivery of diversity days in your local area;

  • Share the commitment to making Calderdale the best borough in the North for LGBTQ young people, their families and communities.

Places are limited and are allocated on a first come first served basis, book now to avoid disappointment.

Refreshments will be provided
