Supporting Young People in Conversations about Sexuality and Gender Identity
The pro-parent and LGBTQ+ EDI sub committees are delighted to welcome you to a special event to help parents, family members and friends have conversations with children and young people who are questioning their sexuality or gender identity. It can often be a confusing and overwhelming time for those who are trying to understand who they are and providing a safe, supportive and non-judgemental place to have those conversations is vitally important.
In this session we will provide advice for family members and friends explaining how to have these conversations and how to make it a positive experience.
The Proud Trust and Mermaids are supporting this event. Speaker details below:
