SAND is the vision of a future where older and old Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans* people in Shropshire are fully integrated into, included and accepted by a whole community which values their experiences, meets their needs and offers appropriate personalised care.
We believe that if we can
- Build the capacity of older and old LGBT people themselves, and straight allies
- Bring about change within organisations to change their working practices
- Tap into influential policy making channels
Then we can fundamentally influence the way in which older and old LGBT people experience – and expect to experience – later life
