EDIF Dissemination Days
These Dissemination Days enabled us to showcase our project involving working with young people from the Havering College LGBT social & support group and Newham PARIS LGBT youth group. Three young people came along to these events with Margo Lindsay and I (Havering College) and Dawn Ballinger (Newham PARIS Youth Group). We displayed our project work and our young people spoke with several people from various other projects and also participated with 'views from learners' feedback at the end of each event.
Jay, one of our students, sang her original song for the audience, which she wrote about her experience as a young LGBT person. This can still be found as an attachment in one of my earlier blogs.
The young people involved have said they found the whole experience extremely positive and have gained new skills and confidence.
We will continue to:
- Raise awareness of LGBT issues within Havering College, as well as the wider community
- Promote Havering College as an LGBT friendly College
- Develop our work with LGBT young people.
Our networking with Newham PARIS Youth Group is on-going and going from strength to strength.
I have attached photos from 2 of the Dissemination days.
Many thanks to Catina from us all! :)
