Les-Bi-Con 2008

A regional Les-Bi-Con will be taking place on Saturday 1st March 2008 between 11-6pm.

The purpose of the day is to bring Lesbian and Bi women from across the North West (and beyond) together to learn from each other about how to be active in running groups; volunteering in groups; and undertsanding the needs of LB young women and how to best address these needs.

The event is open to young people between ages 13 and 25. They do not have to have had any volunteering experience but do need to be keen to learn and to take back what they have learned to their own communities/ groups etc.

The volunteers from LIKT will be running some sessions, as are some people from the Stockport group 'The Base'. But anyone else with skills they would like to share (e.g. by running a workshop) is welcome.

Please find below a link to a survey to identify what training needs you think L and B young women / volunteers have. It takes only a couple of minutes to fill in. There are two pages, the first for young women themselves and the second for people working with young LBT women. Click here to take the survey.

This is a free event sponsored by V and the consortium for LGBT community and voluntary organisations. Help towards travel expenses is available and food will be provided.

To register interest in attending or in holding a workshop, please contact Amelie at:
