Older LGBTQ Project

Our Older People’s Group 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.

To find out more, email [email protected], [email protected] or [email protected].

You can also sign-up to the Older People’s Group’s newsletter to keep up to date with our work, dates for meet-ups, trips and other activities. By signing up you agree to the terms set out in our Privacy Policy.
