About this Event

The training

Feedback from a participant in the online training:

This training provided me with a new perspective around the different experiences of people are bisexual compared to gay. Previously I had assumed that gay and lesbian inclusion practices automatically included, or spoke to bisexuality. I feel inspired.

Transgender Victoria has Federally funded Silver Rainbow: LGBTI inclusive aged care services training available. The next session of our online series for individual aged care professionals is on the 9 September.

The training is:

  • suitable for all staff, from front line to management.
  • highly regarded: Participants frequently report this to be the best training they have ever attended! Since starting the training online, the feedback is that this continues to be significantly engaging.
  • available across Victoria: metro, regional, rural and remote. (If you're not based in Victoria, please find your local State or Territory Silver Rainbow partner provider.)

This training aims to support the development of culturally appropriate services for older lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans & gender diverse, and intersex consumers.

Our training is delivered by people who have lived experience, which they share to provide a further learning opportunities.

In order to maximise learning, we aim to create a safer learning environment by emphasising that this training is to equip you for your work; it is not seeking to change personal opinions or values.

Learning Outcomes:

  • understand LGBTI (and why we don’t use a ‘Q’)
  • identify the range of issues facing LGBTI people, and
  • understand aspects of good practice and inclusive services for LGBTI consumers.

This session runs for 3.5 hours, which includes a 30 minute break around half way into the session.

Organisations are also welcome to engage us with one of the remaining funded sessions available for organisations that provide aged care service as part of their programs.
