Check out the program for the National LGBTI Ageing and Aged Care Conference

The third National LGBTI Ageing and Aged Care Conference is being held in Melbourne at the beginning of October.

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 two 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, and 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 has just been released and is available on the conference website.

Among the keynote speakers is Victoria’s Equality Commissioner Ro Allen, former head of the Australian Human Rights Commission Professor Gillian Triggs, writer and academic Emeritus Professor Dennis Altman and a range of international and local guest speakers.
