The National LGBTI Ageing and Aged Care Community of Practice Project

Delivered by LGBTI aged care specialists GRAI, these training sessions will prompt a better understanding of the needs of LGBTI people, and equip managers to increase the LGBTI inclusivity in their organisation.

Since 2014, GRAI has delivered our ‘Right to Belong’ LGBTI inclusivity training to the aged care sector, as part of the federally funded National LGBTI Ageing and Aged Care Training Project.

This training is 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.

GRAI is now offering a Community of Practice project in 2022. This project will offer organisations the opportunity to send 3-4 people who are sufficiently well-placed to be change agents within their organisation.

This may be managers, team leaders, policy, and HR staff in the aged care sector, including, residential facilities, retirement villages, community care providers and all services engaging with older members of the community.

The three-part course will explore how organisations can link the Aged Care standards with a Rainbow Readiness framework. Participants will understand the meaning and rationale of the standards for LGBTI people (why it matters); what implementation looks like on the ground; and how the organisation can develop and self-audit.
