Are you interested in receiving training on the issues affecting older LGBTQ+ people? Opening Doors is pleased to offer our newly developed course, "Understanding the Needs of Older LGBTQ+ People". Focussing on the ground work of sexual orientation and gender identity, terminology, barriers to access, and small changes, this course is perfect for those looking to gain a firm understanding into the lives of older LGBTQ+ people. For more information, please contact [email protected].

Older LGBTQ+ people still find themselves on the receiving end of prejudice, and lack the appropriate care for their needs. Our course, "Personalising Care for Older LGBTQ+ People" looks at the history of LGTQ+ communities from the 1950s onwards, conducting care assessments, and challenging prejudice. Developed as a step up from our beginner course, anyone with a good understanding of identity would be welcomed on this course. For more information, please contact [email protected].

In order to ensure organisation wide inclusion for older LGBTQ+ people, organisational leaders must ensure that they are paving the way for true equality. Our course, "Managing Services for Older LGBTQ+ People" brings managers and leaders alike up to speed on the cutting edge of inclusive service provision, as we explore policy, engagement, managing complaints, communications, and more. Perfect for organisations looking to create systemic change, this course is tailored to meet your specific needs. For more information, please contact [email protected].
