We treat everyone the same at our service so do we need any particular training in LGBTI issues?

'Treating everybody the same' usually means that all people are treated as heterosexual and this can be alienating to LGBTI people in all sorts of ways. Research shows that not all people are the same. LGBTI people have different life experiences and health needs from their heterosexual peers.

Training will help staff appreciate these different needs and look at simple strategise to meet them.
