The Health & Social Care forum for staff who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgender (LGBT) co-ordinated a meeting with the NI Social Care Council to explore including LGBT issues in social work undergrad and post qualifying training.
It was a very positive meeting and it has been agreed to set up a short term group to develop a tool kit which will include case studies etc. It should only involve a couple of meetings and is open to social workers (health, justice, education, voluntary sector) or others who have an interest.
The first meeting will take place at 6pm on Wednesday 21st March in UNISON, Belfast. Please notify Leanne McMullan (Public Health Agency) if you would like to come along Leanne.McMullan@hscni.net
