This training and resource pack brings together a range of material to help improve services and practice with older lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) people. It also explores the position that older LGBT people are placed when in contact with health and social services. The pack uses the scenario of a fictitious dining club and biographies of its members to explore the issues. Part 1 explores the exclusion of older LGBT people, covering exclusion, ageism, homophobia and heteronormality. Part 2 looks at inclusion, discussing what is meant by inclusion, the law, government policy, citizenship and how to include older LGBT people. Part 3 provides an overview of the literature. Part 4 contains plans for training sessions that can be used for training health and social care staff.  Each part contains themed activities. The pack has been produced by the Older Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered Peoples Network based in the North West of England, in association with the University of Salford.
