In 2014-15 I ran the LGBT Age Capacity Building Project at LGBT Health and Wellbeing. The project supported professionals who work in services for older people to be more inclusive of LGBT+ people. I worked with older LGBT+ people to create resources that included their stories and art, as well as practical tips. Having run loads of training over the course of the job, I can testify that the creative work was very popular, and created a sense of deeper, emotional understanding in a way that statistics don’t quite manage. This project won Equality Initiative of the Year at the inaugural Scottish LGBTI Awards in 2015.
