Older LGBTQ Project

Our Older People’s Project is for LGBTQ people aged 50+ who would like to meet others in their community for support or information.

We provide those aged 50+ with a number of regular social activities, meet ups and trips. We also provide information and host workshops about services for older people and make connections for people within the community and to other services.
