Sahir House has been supporting people seeking asylum and refugees living with HIV for many years. We have built on our experience to provide a safe space for those seeking asylum (regardless of their HIV status) who identify as LGBTQI+.
Thanks to Our Liverpool funding we are hosting free on line training for those developing and/or delivering support to people seeking asylum and refugee communities in Liverpool and surrounding boroughs.
The 2 hour interactive course will:
o Reduce associated stigma by increasing our understanding of the context of why LGBTQI+ people may seek asylum
o Learn from those with lived experience / who attend Many Hands One Heart Support Group (LGBTQI+ asylum peer support)
o Provide up to date information and resources to build on skills and better equip our services
o Respond with confidence to LGBTQI+ refugees, asylum seekers and migrants in Liverpool and surrounding boroughs
o Explore language and meaning relating to the LGBTQI+ community
o Share best practice to promote inclusion
The next course is on Wednesday 2nd February 2022
