Training and Education
Thorne Harbour Health Training and Capacity Building team aims to develop our workforce and improve sector capacity through training and education, reflective practice, and secondary consultation. We seek to address those issues and barriers impacting access to LGBTI health by increasing understanding and building the capacity of organisations, spanning Government, not-for-profit and Corporates across Victoria.
We currently offer education, training and secondary consultations. We have a number of roles at Thorne Harbour Health that support the delivery of these training packages and consultations with expertise in specialised areas as well as immeasurable value of lived experience within the health sector. In line with our core values and historical context the team understands that delivering research based, expert and up to date training with topics that intersect with health and wellbeing is where our strength lies.
