Age UK London has published online a short, practical checklist aimed at helping local organisations make sure their activities are inclusive and accessible for diverse older people. It looks at understanding the local population profile and adapting your offer according to local needs, ensuring an organisational culture of diversity and equality and communicating your activities to diverse groups. Each section includes suggested outcomes and steps towards reaching them, intended to be realistically achievable for small organisations.
You can download the checklist here – scroll to the bottom of the page and the link will appear.
The Equalities Checklist also includes links to a series of in-depth specialist resources on working with older LGBT people, older gypsies and travellers and older refugees, dementia, accessibility of buildings, equality and human rights in practice and an evidence review on diversity in older people and access to services.
Please let me know of any other resources that should be added to this collection in future!
