New affirmative practice guide for working with LGBTIQAP+ young people experiencing homelessness

YAC in collaboration with Open Doors Youth Service has developed an affirmative practice guide for working with LGBTIQAP+ Sistergirl and Brotherboy young people experiencing homelessness in Brisbane. LGBTIQAP+ Sistergirl and Brotherboy young people are significantly over-represented in experiences of homelessness. The good news is that there are a number of things that services and workers can do to make their practice more affirmative and inclusive. The practice guide also includes supporting materials such as an easy reference sheet, referrals and further resources. The guide and supporting materials are available online with a training workshop to be held in future. Enquiries can be directed to Kate Green on 0410 856 702 or kate@yac.net.au.
