Guide to navigating later life

Most of the issues, advice and policies relating to later life apply to everyone equally, but there are some things that affect lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBTQ+) people differently. As an LGBTQ+ person, you have rights that are recognised by law. This guide will help you understand your rights and make sure they’re always respected. The laws affecting LGBTQ+ people have changed, mainly in a positive way. This is part of a wider shift in views and attitudes. But, unfortunately, prejudices do remain. This guide can help you navigate systems that can feel complicated or confusing. You might find that not all of the topics are relevant to your situation right now, but they could help you in the future.
