AIDS Council Of NSW (ACON) will provide this training in order to increase community understanding of LGBTQ people and their experiences with sexual assault.
The eLearning programme will be provided for free to more than 4,000 New South Wales professionals across a broad range of sectors, including domestic and family violence, homelessness, alcohol and drug, health, mental health, law enforcement, corrections and tertiary education.
It will be delivered by ACON’s consultancy programme Pride Training over the next two years.
“We know that when LGBTQ individuals access some mainstream services when seeking support for experiences of sexual assault, they can encounter barriers that may prevent them from getting appropriate care and support, which can result in poor health outcomes,” ACON CEO Nicolas Parkhill says.
“This new training offering from Pride Training will assist professionals and organisations with awareness and understanding of issues uniquely faced by our communities when it comes to sexual assault.”
This eLearning course is divided into seven different modules, which professionals can start and stop at their leisure. It features animations, videos, quizzes, interactive learning components, opportunities to reflect, and pre/post assessments.
