We believe the needs of older LGBT people and communities are often overlooked in housing and care planning. Many older LGBT people feel they have limited housing and care options.
Our older LGBT housing group provides a national platform for shared dialogue about housing issues faced by older LGBT people. It comprises regional groups in London, Brighton, Birmingham and Manchester.
Our aims include:
- enabling older LGBT people, and housing, care and support providers to share their positive and negative experiences of current housing, care and support services;
- creating a space to shape policy and practice at a local, regional and national level
We’re also in the process of developing other best practice guides and national standards of providers of services to improve the housing, care and support services offered to older LGBT people.
