Coming Soon – an LGBT Toolkit for public services.
The Intercom Trust and George Coxon (Classic Care Homes and Devon Dementia Quality Kite Mark Steering Group Chair) have developed some resources for Care Homes to become ‘LGBT friendly’. This project was funded by Public Health Devon.
Care Home resources:
Poster – display the poster to show a visible commitment to LGBT equality and inclusion.
Service user feedback and Staff feedback – use these feedback forms to gain an understanding of how ‘LGBT friendly’ your Care Home environment is. You can then use the feedback as a basis for opening up a discussion about how to make the Care Home more LGBT friendly and/or celebrate areas of good practice, building any improvement actions into your business plan. You may find it helpful to assign lead responsibility to LGBT equality to a member of the management team and to purchase the services of a trainer, agency or consultant to help with improvements.
