3rd National LGBTI Ageing & Aged Care Conference

GLHV, Val's LGBTI Ageing and Aged Care, and the conference committee invite you to be part of the 3rd National lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex (LGBTI) Ageing and Aged Care Conference, in Melbourne, Australia - 5 and 6 October, 2017.

This year's conference explores the ways in which aged and disability services can acknowledge the rich and challenging histories and changing lives of older lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) people and deliver truly LGBTI inclusive services.

Over both days, older LGBTI people and those who care for them will come together with aged and disability experts and service providers to share experiences and ideas, talk policy and practice, and connect over the common goal of promoting and achieving healthy pathways for older LGBTI people.

The Conference will explore how communities, governments, service providers and LGBTI people can work together to:

  • promote and provide healthy ageing pathways for LGBTI people
  • ensure the needs of LGBTI people are understood, respected and addressed in Australia's aged and disability care policies, programs and services.

The conference promises to be an informative and exciting event so be sure to register early and secure your place. With the resounding successes of the previous LGBTI Ageing and Aged Care conferences, the 2017 Conference is sure to fill early. The preliminary program will be released late August.
