We wanted to set something up for the older LGBT people in the community. We aim to set up a group in which you can come along and just spend some time with people of a similar age and interests.
Research shows that older LGBT people are more vulnerable to loneliness as they are more likely to be single, live alone, and have less contact with their relatives.
They are also less likely to engage with local services, with recent findings showing that over four-fifths of older LGBT people do not trust professionals to understand their culture or lifestyle.
We want to change this, and we will start with our group. Somewhere where you will feel safe and confident to be yourself.
