Event description
GOSHH are providing free training days for professionals who are working with LGBTI+ Young People in the Mid-West.

About this event

The LGBTI+ National youth Strategy states that organizations should be addressing the following areas:

• Discrimination, victimization, stigmatization, and abuse.

• Difficulties coming out to families and communities

• Limited understanding by professional service providers and broader society of LGBTI+ issues

• Mental, physical and sexual health challenges

In response to this, GOSHH will be providing a number of one day training workshops. The aim of the day is to support professionals working with young people who identify as LGBTI+.

Some of the key learning goals of the day include:

• Building confidence to facilitate LGBTI+ discussions

• Increase capacity to support clients/service users who identify as LGBTI+

• Identify & become familiar with best practice guidelines & policies

• Learn to identify Homophobic & Transphobic behaviour

• Build capacity to support individuals who are experiencing discrimination on the grounds of their gender and/or orientation

• Explore how gender and orientation impacts the experience of individuals in society.

The workshop has elements of facilitated discussion, participatory learning, and personal development. Methodologies include large and small group work, individual reflection, group discussion and audio visual learning aids.

These events are funded by the Department of Children & Youth Affairs under the What Works Initiative and the National LGBTI+ Youth Strategy.

Organizer GOSHH - Gender Orientation Sexual Health HIV

Organizer of Working with LGBTI+ Young People - Ennis (Hotel Woodstock)

GOSHH is a charity which provides a safe, confidential, welcoming environment for everyone we work with.

Our office is based in Limerick City and we work throughout the Counties of Limerick, Clare, and North Tipperary. We focus on the promotion of equality and wellbeing of all with a positive and respectful approach to sexual orientation and gender diversity. 

Formed in 1989, Limerick AIDS Alliance operated   until 1994 when the name changed to Red Ribbon Project reflecting the breadth of sexual health services provided throughout the Mid-West of Ireland. Gay Switchboard Limerick was founded in 1986 and became Rainbow Support Services in 2001 reflecting the wide variety of identities supported throughout the Mid-West of Ireland.

Both projects joined together in 2013 and became GOSHH in 2014.
