The Home Office does not record the number of hours of LGBT+ sensitive training delivered to officers who interview individuals who claim asylum on the grounds of sexual orientation. LGBT+ training is a central theme throughout the Foundation Training Programme (FTP) that all asylum Decision Makers receive.

We are committed to an asylum system which is supportive and responsive to those claiming asylum on the basis of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
