About this event

In this seminar, we are trying to address the gaps in our understanding of the social care experiences of LGBTQ+ young people.

About this event:

Join Dr Jason Schaub, Professor Paul Montgomery and Dr Willem Stander as they share their findings from interviews with LGBTQ+ young people about their experiences of living in residential care, and discuss the start of their trial evaluating an LGBTQ+ training package for social workers.

While we have some understanding of the difficulties of LGBTQ+ young people’s lives, there are significant gaps in our understanding, particularly about their social care experiences. Lgbtq+ Young People in Social cAre (LYPSA) project, in conjunction with What Works for Children’s Social Care have come together to gather the experiences of LGBTQ+ young people in residential social care and to understand what works and what needs to change to improve LGBTQ+ knowledge for social workers. This is the first project of its type in the UK. They will present early findings from their interviews with LGBTQ+ young people with experiences of living in residential care, and discuss the start of their trial evaluating an LGBTQ+ training package for social workers.
