LGBTIQ Inclusive Youth Services

It is important that services that support young people are truly inclusive of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ) young people. This is especially so in regional areas where LGBTIQ young people are less likely to have access to LGBTIQ-specific services and more likely to be isolated.

In 2018, we will offer LGBTIQ inclusion awareness training for staff and volunteers in regional youth-oriented services. In addition, up to ten youth-oriented organisations will receive subsidised access to Shine SA's accredited How2 training program that supports organisations to achieve inclusive LGBTIQ services. A subsidy for travel will be available for up to six regional organisations.

Stay tuned for further information about training details and locations. For more information about this initiative contact Katriona Kinsella on (08) 8413 8178 or email
