Age Concern highlights issues which face lesbian and gay older people


Posted on October 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Age Concern¹s latest resource pack, Opening Doors, is intended to highlight the organisation¹s growing role in the promotion of older lesbian and gay issues, arising from the charity¹s objective to be wholly inclusive, working for the benefit of all older people, and ensuring that all older people can enjoy later life. Opening Doors sets out the challenge facing organisations to create an environment of positive acceptance and welcome for lesbian and gay clients and for lesbian and gay staff and volunteers. The pack is applicable to a wide readership ­ those working in local authorities, voluntary organisations, housing associations, residential and nursing home providers and providers of domiciliary care.
