Improving Your Allyship to Older LGBTQ+ People

Join us for a free webinar delivered by Opening Doors, in partnership with Flourishing Lives, on improving your allyship to older LGBTQ+ people and supporting greater LGBTQ+ inclusion in arts & wellbeing services.

Despite decades of tireless campaigning from activists and changemakers, LGBTQ+ people still find themselves marginalised by a community that rarely considers their needs.   

This discrimination is often heightened when somebody belongs to more than one marginalised group, which is where older LGBTQ+ people find themselves situated.

This session will focus on how to improve your allyship for older LGBTQ+ people, going over:
  • the basics of allyship
  • the situation currently transpiring in the UK
  • and some helpful tips on how you can tailor your allyship to be as inclusive as possible.

Opening Doors is the UK’s largest charity connecting LGBTQ+ people over 50 with activities, events, support and information.
 They have been providing training for over 10 years and their team of specialist trainers and facilitators all contribute their lived experience as older lesbian, gay, bi and trans people. Their training is endorsed by Skills For Care and satisfies the equalities requirements of local Clinical Commissioning Groups, the Care Quality Commission and other bodies responsible for overseeing the quality of health and social care provision.
