Abstract

This practice guide helps social workers build knowledge and understanding of the specific challenges facing LGBT older people and why they may be less likely to access services. Drawing on research, legislation and good practice, it offers tips on talking to people about their sexuality and sexual identities as part of assessing need, designing services and support, promoting inclusivity and diversity in your practice and working with partners, carers and the person's support network.
