Purpose
  • Support Personnel

This project's key aim is to strengthen the capacity of professionals (of the social and employment sector) in answering the needs of LGBTQI refugees, migrants, and asylum seekers. This will be achieved by developing a sustainable training programme that will enlighten professionals on the challenges posed by the double stigma attached to this community. The programme will give a profound insight into basic concepts related to LGBTQI people's rights and needs, as well as the culture of the LGBTQI migrants’/refugees' countries of origin with a view to providing personalized support and a specific methodology regarding their integration into the culture and reality of the host country.

To set the basis for the design of the most appropriate tools and training programme in order to build the knowledge and skills of

educators and professionals of the employment and social sector, a research was performed following a two-folded approach: 1) identifying the currently existing initiatives targeting LGBTQI migrants, in order to establish a strong base upon which to build but also discern the potential training areas to strengthen; 2) identifying the needs of educators and professionals of the employment and social sector supporting migrants in terms of skills and competencies in order to be better able to support them through the design of the most appropriate tools and training content.

Whereupon a brief national report presenting the main findings and conclusions was produced by each partner, while a consolidated comparative transnational report built upon the findings of the national reports will be produced by the output leader. These national and European reports will therefore be the cornerstone for the capacity building programme

Thereafter, the consortium will develop and make available on an online platform a training programme for educators and professionals of the employment and social sector supporting migrants, aiming at fulfilling the particular needs of migrants coming from LGBTQI backgrounds. The end goal is to design a comprehensive capacity building programme that will allow educators and professionals working with migrants to effectively support LGBTQI migrants in enrolling into Adult Education programmes, both in formal and informal settings.
