LGBTI ADVISORY BOARD - RECRUITMENT CALL FOR LGBTI REFUGEES

Following the success of the EpsiLon Project International Conference on 'LGBTI refugees and migrants: the situation in Greece and Europe’ held in Athens last week, we are now back on track and working towards developing the second project output. The partnership is now developing a curriculum for a face-to-face training to equip professional and volunteers to better understand the realities of LGBTI refugees.

During EpsiLon conference, it became even more evident how valuable and important has been to involve those directly affected by our project in its development and delivery. LGBTI refugees, members of our LGBTI Advisory board, contributed to the research to the recently launched EpsiLon free e-book, and some of them not only attended the conference but also presented at panels about their personal experiences.

In order to build on that, we would like to strengthen the user-led aspect of EpsiLon project and guarantee it remains a needs-based project. To that end, the IARS has decided to open recruitment for our LGBTI Advisory Board again to ensure that more LGBTI refugees have the opportunity to get involved in this project and have their voices heard.

Advisory Board members are required to commit to a minimum of two hours a month. In return, we offer the opportunity to contribute to contents of the project, the possibility of taking part in training and co-delivering training to other professionals working in the area.
