A Journey Through Transition – Exploring Gender Identity

This training celebrates the many and varied identities that share space under the ‘trans umbrella’. Developed and delivered by qualified trans-identified individuals, it provides both objective and personal insight into the social and medical pathways trans people can pursue…


Our team works with some of UKs most marginalised communities.

All money raised by our fund-raising project LGBT Advance goes directly back into our service, supporting those who are living with a disability, on their journey to seek asylum or, are living with poor mental health. Many of our service users are often repeat victims of hate crime and discrimination, living in poverty and more often than enough, they are socially isolated.

Cleveland View Care Home

“An informative course delivered by a passionate, involved, team. I felt immediately at ease with what could easily be a daunting subject for a person of my age and background. Time flew by and I certainly left the course feeling better informed and positive that I could put my learning into use.”


North Star Housing

“The afternoon of training provided by LGBT Advance was fantastic. Both Jack and Andy made it a highly engaging and informative afternoon. The atmosphere they created was very welcoming and I really appreciated how open they were about their own experiences.”


Teesside University

“I came out of that session feeling more educated than I ever have been before on Gender Identities. The whole session was inspiring.
The training was thought provoking, educational and what really made it was the facilitators (who were very engaging) bringing their own personal experiences into what was being discussed.”


Sunderland University

“A big thank you to Sarah and Andrew for the Hate Crime Session this morning. Very interesting and the time flew by too quickly.”


“Thank you so much. The training our staff received was of a very high standard, lots of information for the ability for our staff to understand.
The facilitators were very helpful, knowledgeable and made the training interesting.”
