LGBT Age is a service for older lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in Edinburgh and the Lothians. The service is run by the LGBT Centre for Health and Wellbeing and will be offering support to LGBT people over 50 in a number of ways including social opportunities, outings and events to improve social networks and have a bit of fun.
- A volunteer befriending scheme providing one-to-one support. This can take a number of forms depending on what people are looking for – social contact and good banter, pursuit of hobbies, support to attend events or appointments.
- An information service on a range of topics including LGBT and mainstream services, housing and legal matters.
- An advocacy service to offer individuals support in dealing with issues such as accessing health and social care services or challenging discrimination.
Please help to spread the word of this service to any older LGBT people you know.
