Working with older lesbian, gay and bisexual people. A Guide for Care and Support Services

This guide offers practical advice to organisations providing care and support services about how to meet the needs of lesbian, gay and bisexual people. Sometimes changes to policy, staff training and awareness about the law can make things better. But often it is about simple things such as awareness and communication – individual actions will have a big impact.

This guide is split into the following sections:

  • What older gay people need
  • What the law says
  • How to involve older people
  • What care and support workers can do
  • What homecare providers can do
  • What care homes can do
  • What housing providers can do
  • What health services can do
  • What local authorities can do
