Summary

The roll-out of the National LGBTI Ageing and Aged Care Training has presented us with a great opportunity to look at the struggles and successes of negotiating LGBTI inclusivity in aged care delivery.

The training room exposes common narratives of resistance, and trainers become familiar with recurring objections to cultural change. But do these reflect what happens on the ground, and what strategies have organisations employed to successfully implement elements of inclusivity?

Thanks to those who gave generously of their time to discuss their organisations’ ‘inclusivity journey’, to offer some hopefully useful signposts to others along the way.
