Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Dementia FrameWork

This document provides a framework that seeks to build on the six goals of the Australian
Government (then) Department of Health and Ageing’s LGBTI Ageing and Aged Care Strategy
(2012) to provide equity, acknowledgement, responsiveness and person centred support to
LGBTI people with dementia and their carers, partners, friends and relatives.


Beyond the myth of ‘pink privilege’

This report aims to address the gap in knowledge about poverty and disadvantage experienced by LGBTI people in Sydney and NSW more broadly. We use the terms poverty and disadvantage to denote two different sets of distinct, but interrelated, experiences. Poverty refers to the inability to meet basic needs (which could be defined as shelter, food, clothes and transport), whilst disadvantage refers to differential outcomes people experience as members of a social group, which are essentially discriminatory in nature (for example, disparities in wages and salary earnings, employment conditions, or promotions).


The 519, Training and Education Resources

The 519 is a City of Toronto agency, committed to the health, happiness and full participation of the LGBTQ community. They strive to make a real difference in people’s lives, while working to promote inclusion, understanding and respect.


Aged Care Diversity Framework

The Framework is a high-level document that provides guidance to service providers, consumers, government and peak bodies on how to adequately address the specific needs of all people with diverse characteristics and life experiences.

The design of the Framework ensures that Aged Care embraces diversity and is truly inclusive of all people. The Framework follows on from the National LGBTI Ageing and Aged Care Strategy which completed in June 2017. The initial Strategy was developed with key recommendations from the National Roundtable on LGBTI Ageing and Aged Care, formed of LGBTI organisations and community leaders. In the review of the Strategy, respondents strongly stated that the goals should continue in future aged care reforms, such as the Aged Care Diversity Framework which launched on Dec 6, 2017 by the Hon Minister Ken Wyatt in Canberra.


LGBTI Aged Care Training Final Evaluation Report 2016

The National LGBTI Health Alliance implemented a national workforce training program to build the skills of the aged care workforce to provide inclusive, accessible and appropriate care to older lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people. The project was funded over a three year period from July 2013 to June 2016 with funding from the Australian Government Department of Health. Further funding was provided to enable a 12 month project extension. This evaluation focuses on the initial three year contract period.
