We give older people the chance to have their views heard through one-to-one and community group consultations and events.
Opening Doors Suffolk
In February 2011 Age UK Suffolk launched an exciting project called Opening Doors Suffolk. Its aim was to find out about the experiences, needs and views of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGB&T) older people .
Our project worker spoke to twenty LGB&T participants, some aged 60+ years who have used services that cater for the needs of older people, and others aged 50+ years who wished to talk about what they might need in the future. Two people were also family carers. Following the conclusion of the project a report has been produced.
