LGBT+ CHAMPIONS PROGRAMME

About the LGBT+ Champions Programme

 

In Ireland, as LGBT+ People get older they are often forced into the closet due to the fear of not being accepted, and if they can’t be open about who they are with their health professionals then their mental and physical health may be at risk.

Our LGBT+ Champions create change in the healthcare system, making LGBT+ Older people visible, safe and assured that they will be accepted even at their most vulnerable time, so that they can go on to live happier, healthier lives as part of their communities.

Why do we need the LGBT+ Champions Programme?

We talk to three older members of the LGBTI+ community about why inclusive healthcare matters.

How is the programme making a difference?

We hear from two of our LGBT Champions about the difference the training has made to their practice.
