Silver Rainbow Training

 

Historically, LGBTIQ Sistergirl and Brotherboy people have a shared experience of discrimination and prejudice. Many LGBTIQ Sistergirl and Brotherboy elders have experienced violence, isolation, and stigma throughout their lives. These elders often do not disclose their identities or histories to services and can remain invisible in the aged care sector and broader community.

The Silver Rainbow LGBTI Aged Care Awareness Training Project is managed by the LGBTIQ+ Health Australia and is being delivered collaboratively with project partners across every state and territory in Australia. It is funded by the Department of Health. 

Silver Rainbow training will support your organisation to work towards meeting the new priorities under the National Aged Care Diversity Framework.  The 4 hr sessions will support aged care services and their staff to understand the needs of LGBTIQ Sistergirl and Brotherboy elders, the experiences they have had to date and how they can change those experiences by becoming LGBTIQ Sistergirl and Brotherboy inclusive in their practice. Participants will be provided with refreshments, a workbook and a certificate on completion of the training.
