This project aims to raise awareness of social workers active in refugee homes concerning sexual and gender diversity. The training should give them the necessary tools to effectively work with lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans* and intersex (LGBTI) asylum seekers. On the one hand the training helps to question their own stereotypes through self-reflexion, on the other hand practical skills are discussed on how to handle conflict situations that can make life for LGBTI refugees and asylum seekers difficult.
A bilingual leaflet in FR/GE containing various information on LGBTI structures in Luxembourg, on the organization of different activities and with best practices will complete the training.
– Social workers and socio-educational staff working in refugee homes
Duration of the project: 01/09/16 – 31/08/18
