Course Aims

This awareness course will enable learners to learn about supporting the needs of LGBT people and recognise the equal standing that LGBT people have.

The course reflects the Care Quality Commissions approach to LGBT people and sexuality and also embraces the research and information published by Age UK and Stonewall who campaign for equality and diversity.

This training applies to all health and social care workers that work in settings such as Care Homes, Day Centres, or supporting an individual in their own home. This also applies to hospital staff at health care assistant level, unpaid and voluntary workers.
