Have Your Say 

The National LGBTI Health Alliance is holding a consultation to develop the new National LGBTI Aged Care Action Plan.

Click here to participate in the online survey. 

This consultation is open to all LGBTI elders and their chosen families, networks, carers and supporters as well as aged care providers and other organisations who want to help shape what LGBTI inclusive aged care looks like

The federal Dept. of Health is co-designing an ‘Aged Care Diversity Framework’ (the Framework) which will be used to guide government policy on diversity-related aged care issues and aged care delivery. Part of the Framework will be an LGBTI Aged Care Action Plan.

The action plans will support aged care providers, consumers, families and carers by focusing on solutions and addressing specific barriers and challenges affecting LGBTI elders’ ability to access aged care services.

Your input will help inform the content of the LGBTI Aged Care Action Plan. This Action Plan will influence government policy on LGBTI ageing, and lead the aged care sector to better meet your needs.
