We can provide basic Q&A on the effects and experiences of the LGBTQ+ community to a full training lecture on equalities and diversity legislation and policies. Organisations will benefit from the unique perspective of our team who are from the LGBTQ+ community, As employees and managers we have experienced first hand, the challenges of a diverse group working together to provide a service, whilst negotiating the difficulties of being transgender and supporting others of the LGBTQ+ community.

We can all work together to make our working environment a safe space for all to work in and use its services, people need to know they are included, respected and protected, through good productive communication and engagement we can learn and remove anxiety, this can improve the wellbeing of all those who engage with us, creating the environment where great things can happen.

For health Care professionals and GP services, we can provide bespoke training on the best pathway to good high standards of care for transgender patients to assist in the patient to professional relationship, that gives understanding, empathy and clinical knowledge and build confidence in assisting trans patients.

We are aware that doctors and nurses very rarely come into contact with transgender patients and that current medical training is very limited on this patient demographic, as an example… patent A ‘a trans female’, returns from hospital after lower gender reassignment surgery (vaginoplasty) she has some complications, Hyper granulated tissue in vaginal vault (bleeding and fluid leakage) and excess skin on labia, she is worried and anxious, What dose the district nurse or the doctor do at an appointment? what differences in genital anatomy should you be aware of? how do you respond to the patients concerns? where can you get support IE for corrective surgery ( surgery done abroad) and on that first meeting how to you make the patient feel respected and cared for? these and many other scenarios and questions we can give guidance and advice, provided from our many years of personal experience as patients, as health care professionals and as providers of trans care.
Legislation what is appropriate and required.

Rights keeping safe for all.

Equality Being fair and allowing opportunities.
We try to tailor our training to the environment or organisation, we listen to the needs of our clients and think of those involved as individuals. Our training has opportunities to communicate (Q&A) in positive ways with our trainers who are part of the LGBTQ+ community.

Current legislation is discussed to ensure all those involved have the knowledge to meet their responsibilities both in a work environment and their personal lives.

We discuss the feelings and affects on those experiencing poor interactions with organisations and how this could impact on business and service delivery.
