Silver Rainbow LGBTI Aged Care Awareness Training

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

Silver Rainbow LGBTI Aged Care Awareness Training is a practical training workshop for building confidence in working affirmatively with people of diverse sexualities, genders and/or intersex status.

In Silver Rainbow Training, we offer industry-best practice standards to grow affirmative practices for Aged Care Services, Residential Aged Care Facilities, organisations, workplaces, and community groups.

Silver Rainbow training will assist participants to:

  • Unpack the LGBTI+ acronym and the differences between gender identity, sexual orientation, and intersex status.
  • Gain confidence in the use of language and terminology to affirm LGBTI+ people and communities.
  • Understand the significance of historical discrimination and stigma and its impact on the unique health and wellbeing needs of LGBTI+ older people
  • Review current legislation and policies related to LGBTI+ older communities
  • Develop ways to enhance individual and workplace inclusive practice, including workplace policies
  • Identify key resources and services to use with clients and workers
  • Focus on topics of learning and discussion specific to your organisational needs
