Professional Training

As a community-based organisation, we recognise that we can maximise our resources by reaching out and raising awareness about the LGBTQ community in Singapore through sharing our expertise and facilitating meaningful discussions.

Click here for our recently concluded series of training workshops in February 2019 for professionals working in social service, healthcare and education settings.

To empower our fellow professionals with the awareness, skills and confidence so that they are better equipped to work with their LGBTQ clients.

Types of sessions offered:

  • Skill-based and capacity building workshops for professionals working in the social service, healthcare and education sectors.

  • Awareness talks to enhance understanding of issues faced by the LGBTQ community.

  • Lectures on topics relevant to tertiary-level social work, counselling or psychology students.

Professional training fees:

As a community-based, non-profit organisation, our resources are limited and we need to generate income to keep our services running. As such, we charge a professional fee of around SGD $300 - $500 per hour, depending on the nature of the event (workshop, talk or panel discussion). Please contact us if you would like to find out more.
