Right to Belong

The National LGBTI Ageing & Aged Care Training Project presents Right to Belong: LGBTI People in Aged Care.

Develop a better understanding of the needs of LGBTI people, and increase the confidence of aged care staff to deliver an inclusive, best practice service. This training is delivered by LGBTI aged care specialist GRAI, funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health as part of the National LGBTI Ageing and Aged Care Training Project, and is subsidised for those working in the aged care sector.

These workshops will:

  • Increase awareness and understanding of LGBTI clients and support the delivery of culturally safe and welcoming services to LGBTI elders.
  • Assist your organisation to provide LGBTI inclusive care and comply with legal obligations under the Aged Care Act and the Equal Opportunities Act

Did you know?

  • There are approximately 54,000 LGBTI older adults in WA: the largest special needs group requiring aged-care services.

This training is suitable for:
