The IARS International Institute
About the CPD course
This training is designed as part of Output 2 of the 2 years Erasmus+ funded EpsiLon project; which is a partnership project among 5 organisations based in 5 different EU countries. The project aims to identify and respond to the needs of LGBTIQ+ refugees by adopting a user-led methodology to design and train professionals working with LGBTIQ+ refugees. This is a face to face training for professionals and volunteers working with LGBTIQ+ refugees and migrants. Its aim is to increase knowledge and skills of professionals; ultimately building their capacity to answer to the needs of LGBTIQ+ refugees; contributing to preventing abuse in centres; shelters; local communities and services dedicated to this target group.
