Equipping Professionals for Supporting LGBT Migrants & Refugees

Equipping Professionals for Supporting LGBT Migrants & Refugees

The EpsiLon Project is responding to two current and urgent needs in Europe: (1) the rise in migrant and refugee numbers (2) the persistent inequality and persecution of Lesbian, Bisexual, Trans-gender groups, Intersex and Queer (LGBTIQ+). Combined together these two characteristics make LGBTIQ+ migrants and refugees one of the most vulnerable groups in modern Europe. This project aims to help address this issue by increasing the knowledge, skills and awareness of all those adult professionals and volunteers who come in contact with the migrant/refugee LGBTIQ+ community. EpsiLon brings together key partners from 5 case study countries to develop a training programme for professionals and volunteers working with asylum seekers and refugees in asylum centres, camps, other shelters and in local communities.
