Building Relationship with Business training day
14th October 10am - 4.30pm
Voluntary Action Islington, 200a Pentonville Rd. N1 9JP

Provided by LVSCs London for All project, and delivered by Business Unusual

Our course aims to help you understand the new context in which businesses operate, where increased levels of scrutiny and desire to become engaged with the communities in which they operate mean that the days of businesses simply handing over cheques to charities are over, with businesses now seeking relationships of greater depth with direct involvement.

Aimed at organisations with little or no prior experience of business partnerships, this will be a small-group interactive day of learning and exercises, designed to help you understand the business perspective and begin thinking about an action plan for engaging with businesses.

You should send a staff member that is responsible for, or involved in, steering the strategic direction of the organisation. These workshops are designed for individuals that will actively apply and take forward any new learning and action points.

Gender Recognition Act Training
4th November 2015 10:00am -1:00pm
Fitzrovia Community Centre. 6 Foley Street. W1W 6DL

Facilitated by Lee Gale, TransBareAll

As well as a broader awareness of trans issues, it is important to be aware of the relevant equalities legislation. The Gender Recognition Act 2004 (GRA) is a very important piece of legislation for the rights of trans people in the UK. It enables many trans people to get legal recognition of their affirmed gender and allows them to change their birth certificate to reflect this, giving privacy rights and dignity to people in the UK.

This session for London voluntary and community organisations and groups aims to give a brief introduction to the current European situation for legal recognition of trans people, what the GRA covers and who it protects, and how to make sure that you and your organisation comply with this legislation and the law.
