Training

It is acknowledged that having a well-trained workforce to deliver aged care services is essential if inclusive GLBTI practice is to be achieved. This is a high-priority focus for GRAI, who deliver the following programs:

1. Right To Belong - creating an LGBTI inclusive aged care service (5 Part Program) (EOI)

Expressions of interest are sought from aged care service providers for participation in GRAI’s 2017 program: Right To Belong, creating an LGBTI inclusive aged care service.

This is a year-long program to achieve sustainable, organisational change for LGBTI inclusivity. It will support the development of services that are welcoming and inclusive of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) individuals and their families.

The program supports organizations to implement the 6 National Standards for LGBTI inclusive practice to ensure your service will confidently provide a culturally safe environment for LGBTI people and also meet legal obligations for inclusive service provision.

About The Program

The program involves a series of 5 workshops over a 12 month period to coach participants through the practical steps involved in building an LGBTI inclusive service. Participants will be supported to plan, implement and evaluate changes in their service including:

1. Conducting an organisational audit

2. Consulting consumers
