Make a real difference for your older clients, by growing affirmative practices and embedding lasting change in your organisation.

Twenty10 is the NSW state partner for the national Silver Rainbow LGBTI+ Ageing & Aged Care project. We deliver LGBTI+ inclusivity training sessions to aged care services in NSW. The aim of these sessions is to build the capacity of aged care services to adopt practices that create an inclusive and welcoming environment for all LGBTI+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Intersex) older people. 

Our Silver Rainbow LGBTI+ Ageing & Aged Care training packages include training sessions and ongoing consultation to support your service to address areas of growth in LGBTI+ inclusivity.

Twenty10 will support an ongoing relationship with you to help you make genuine policy and culture changes within your organisation after the initial training.

      Who is Silver Rainbow LGBTI+ Ageing & Aged Care training for?

      The audience for the training is any worker providing support or care to older people accessing aged care funded services. Settings may include residential aged care, independent living support, community care, home care, and respite. 

      Whilst the training is predominantly for aged care workers in direct care roles, the training may be adapted for workers in other roles such as allied health, administration, support staff and volunteers (e.g., Community Visitor Scheme). The training may also be used as an introduction to LGBTI+ inclusion for management and leadership teams.
