Summary: Recommendations made to the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety

Between October 2019 and January 2020, The National LGBTI Health Alliance (The Alliance) made three submissions to the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety. These three submissions used material gathered from a series of consultations with LGBTI elders, their family, friends and carers in a number of locations around the country, as well as input from online surveys from our members and the broader community.

Tasked by the Aged Care Sector Committee’s Diversity Sub Group Silver Rainbow consulted broadly around Australia with LGBTI older people, elders, carers, families, loved ones and organisations to develop Actions to support Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Gender Divers and Intersex elders (Action Plan). This report focuses on the consultation process that informed the Action Plan (https://agedcare.health.gov.au/actions-to-support-lesbian-gay-bisexual-trans-and-gender-diverse-and-intersex-elders).

Rainbow Ageing Papers: Now Published

Rainbow Ageing is a national research project that aims to provide new data on the health and well-being of older lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Australians, led by the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society (ARCSHS) at La Trobe University. The project is funded by the Australian Research Council and involves four partner organisations, including the National LGBTI Health Alliance, COTA Australia, SANE Australia, and Carers Australia.

  Thirty-five delegates attended the 3rd National Roundtable and the collective wisdom produced some clear directions for the Alliance to work towards in the ageing and aged care space. This report highlights the key recommendations from the workshops on the Royal Commission into Aged Care and the Roundtable Objectives.
