3FF are inviting LGBT+ organisations and groups to join us for specially tailored training and support. Through this funded project, we will work with you to help you ensure your spaces, programmes and events are sensitive to and inclusive of the needs of people from different faith and belief backgrounds.

As the UK’s leading interfaith organisation, we have over 20 years’ experience bringing people of different faiths and beliefs together, as well as supporting schools, organisations and community groups to be more confident, skilled and inclusive in their work with people from different backgrounds. We aim for people of all identities to be able to be themselves in all settings.
Some relevant context for LGBT+ organisations and groups:

In a one-day training session, participants from LGBT+ organisations / groups will:
One month after the training you will participate in a 121 coaching and support meeting, to help you ensure what you have learnt is being implemented and to discuss challenges specific to your organisation / group.
To have maximum impact, places on the programme are restricted to one person per LGBT+ organisation / group. This can be a staff member or volunteer. We recommend someone who works face-to-face with members of the public, or who is responsible for your public-facing work who could cascade learning to others.

Places on the programme are funded, but we do ask for a contribution of £20 per organisation / group to help cover our costs. However, please do contact us if this is a barrier for your organisation /group and we will see what we can do.
To register your interest in the programme, and to select the training day you wish to attend, please fill in this short form.
We will aim to be in touch with you within 14 days.
