About this program
This project ensured access, service delivery and employment experiences for people from LGBTI communities was positive and welcoming. Through co-designing services for older LGBTI people, a LGBTI Connect Service was developed.
This service works with potential clients to understand their requirements and incorporates a social program element to facilitate social connections and mutual support. The program has also supported the delivery of extensive staff training leading to new and updated policies to guide culturally sensitive support for clients from the LGBTI community.
