Queer Migrants: Addressing gaps in adult education and social cohesion
Programme: Erasmus+, KA2, Strategic Partnerships in the fields of Higher Education, VET, School and Adult education
Acronym: Queer Migrants
The key aim of this project is to strengthen the capacity of professionals (of the social & employment sector) in answering the needs of LGBTQI refugees, migrants and asylum seekers. This will be achieved through the objective of developing a sustainable training programme that will enlighten professionals on the challenges posed by the double stigma attached to this community. The programme will give a profound insight into basic concepts related to LGBTQI people’s rights and needs, as well as the culture of the LGBTQI migrants’/refugees’ countries of origin with a view to providing personalised support and a specific methodology regarding their integration into the culture and reality of the host country. The focus of the project will not be limited to a specific age group, in an effort to improve the lives of migrants/refugees who belong to the LGBTQI older adult community as well.
Start Date: 1/9/2020
