LGBT Awareness

LGBT Advance’s interactive workshop LGBT Awareness covers the most up-to-date
terminology in LGBT culture and the distinction between sexual orientation and
gender identity, and shines a spotlight on LGBT cultural issues both timeless
and current.  It also explores the many and varied identities under the
‘transgender umbrella’, including non-binary identities.  The final part
of the workshop looks at strategies to enable your organisation to be fully
LGBT inclusive.

“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.”

Journey Through Transition -

Exploring Gender Identity

LGBT Advance’s interactive workshop A Journey Through Transition – Exploring Gender Identity celebrates the many and varied identities that share space under the ‘trans umbrella’.  It provides both objective and personal insight into the social and medical pathways trans people can pursue.  The course explores the distinction between gender identity and sexual orientation, up-to-date useful trans+ and non-binary terminology, and looks at how any organisation can create a fully trans and non-binary inclusive environment. 

“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.”

LGBT+ Inclusion in Schools

As we celebrate a great step forwards for LGBT inclusion in England’s schools, we want to support our local Teesside schools to become inclusive for young people who identify as LGBT+.
From September 2020 all secondary schools will be required to teach pupils about sexual orientation and gender identity, and all primary schools will be required to teach about different families, which can include LGBT families.


Our specialist team have created a training package that is directly tailored to help meet national requirements.

  • Includes 1-hour policy writing and a feedback report

We can train your students to become LGBT Advocates!

LGBT+ Inclusion in Care Homes

‘Research has shown that as well as encountering discrimination in healthcare, older LGBT+ people also face prejudice in residential, nursing and assisted care, leading them to either hide their sexuality or discard those options for their care’

Do you want to ensure your care home is inclusive to LGBT+ residents?

  • Package deal includes 1-hour policy writing and a feedback report
“… it was fantastic Andy & Kay were brilliant, all 18 staff who attended thoroughly enjoyed it and now the others want another session booking!!! We are going to make LGBT our little project and already have a volunteer to be LGBT Champion."

Age With Pride was a research project looking into the needs of elderly LGBT clients in Middlesbrough Care Homes and the wider older LGBT community.

Moving into sheltered housing or a care home as an older LGBT person may be a lonely or isolating experience. Research suggests older LGBT people are more likely to experience loneliness in old age.
