About this Event
The LGBTI Ageing and Aged Care training session provides an introduction to supporting and working with older LGBTI people. This program is delivered via Zoom and ideal for staff working across CHSP and/or supporting older people in the community or care settings. The session will introduce participants to the following:
- LGBTI communities, terminology, definitions & history
- Key aspects of LGBTI ageing
- An introduction to LGBTI inclusive practice
This interactive session is delivered via Zoom – the Zoom invitations will be sent only to registered participants prior to the training session.
This session is funded through CHSP sector support and development, and open to a maximum of 4 participants per organisation.
Val’s provides an environment for safe, accessible and open discussion to foster an understanding of the histories and experiences of older LGBTI people and how these may impact their need for and access to aged care services. We have experience in working with older people and within the aged care sector, and understand the service delivery models, complexities and the range of staff providing support and care. We can assist staff and organisations to become LGBTI aware and provide an introduction to LGBTI inclusive practice. This program has been developed by Val’s LGBTI Ageing and Aged Care, part of Rainbow Health Victoria at the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society.
