LGBT Champions Programme

Who can become an LGBT Champion?

The Champions Programme is targeted towards health and social care professionals working and supporting older people. There is a great need to ensure that the health and social care staff are properly trained and aware and that their services are inclusive of LGBT+ people.

The aim of the LGBT Champions Programme is to address this by developing the awareness, confidence, competence and commitment of the health and social care professionals working in older age services, so they can transform the care experience of older LGBT+ people to one of inclusion, respect and dignity.  The Programme will build on the professionals’ existing knowledge, expertise, skills and attitudes by training, empowering and supporting individual LGBT+ Champions within key health and social care support services.
