We’re developing LGBTI+ inclusion in policies and practice guidelines for those working in the youth work sector.
Take our short survey to let us know what supports would be useful to you in your work. Survey closes May 28th.
What’s it for?
Through this survey you’re helping us to:
- Develop and deliver training that meets your needs
- Offer one-to-one guidance on writing policy
- Develop resources for you
- Offer further equality, diversity & inclusion supports in response to sector needs
What’s it about?
We believe LGBTI+ policy can and should sit within an organisation’s wider equality, inclusion, and diversity policy. Because we know policy development in our sector is varied and doesn’t necessarily reflect an organisation’s actual practice, we’re asking about practice and policy.
We want to support you to ensure that your services are welcoming, safe, & inclusive of all young people, including LGBTI+ young people.
Why it’s important
Policies send out a strong message: that LGBTI+ people are valued and will be supported within the youth work setting.
Many of us are working with young people who have not yet disclosed their identity. Whether a young LGBTI+ person chooses to come out or not, they should feel fully supported by our services.
This is why we believe it is important to create policies that assume the presence of LGBTI+ young people in our organisations.
We would like to thank NYCI member BeLong To Youth Services for their collaboration in developing the survey.
