Whilst we will work together to not share explicitly triggering content, you may find some of what is spoken about difficult, and it is important that you have coping strategies in place. </p><p>We will always check out at the end of the session, and further signposting/resources can be shared. </p><p>However, the workshop's facilitator is unable to provide any other support outside of this space.<br><br>Please be aware that when joining the session you will be expected to honour these specific group boundaries:<br></p><ul><li>Confidentiality - don’t share what others have said outside of the group</li><li>No numbers - we don’t refer to numbers such as calories/weight/BMI etc within the group as it can be triggering</li><li>No negative use of the word “fat” - we do not engage with fatphobic language <br><br>If you have any questions or concerns please get in touch. A feedback form will be provided at the end of each session so that the meetings can develop in ways that serve the community.<br></li></ul><p><strong><strong>Accessibility:</strong></strong></p><p>Zoom event where closed captions can be enabled and some chat participation(note that there will be one facilitator).</p><p>No breakout rooms available due to facilitator numbers. </p><p>Please contact hello@londonlgbtqcentre.org if you have further accessibility requirements. </p></div></div>
