Diversity News – Winter 2015

Welcome to our Winter Diversity News.

We’ve been busy bees over the last few months. We delivered training, which focussed on our core areas of equality, diversity and inclusion, as well as working to change health inequalities. You’ll learn more about our training in this issue of Diversity News.

This is a special issue of Diversity News, which features Trans Awareness trainers and their brilliant work. You can read their biographies while learning how we can support your service to be more Trans aware and inclusive.

There’s so much in the media about gender identity; celebrities coming out like Caitlyn Jenner and Kelly Malone. However, there’s cases of misgendering in prison services from the recent Tara Hudson case, at Bristol prison, to the tragic loss of Vicky Thompson, at Leeds prision. So our Trans Awareness Training will make you aware of the issues and guide you in supporting your transgender clients.

Our newsletter also covers our Domestic Violence and Abuse prevention project and how we work closely with Stand Against Racism and Inequality (SARI) to tackle hate crime. And we have news from Avon & Somerset Police about its campaign to raise awareness of male rape and sexual assault.

Our New Year brings two new reports about Domestic Abuse and Tackling Health Inequalities for LGBT+ Communities. Subscribe to Diversity News and be the rst to get our reports when they’re published.

I’d like to take this opportunity to wish all our readers a safe and peaceful festive season and we’ll see you in the New Year.
