OUR VISION

We are looking to provide a care experience that will become a beacon of best practice, by building affordable housing that serves the needs of the older LGBT community and that offers an excellent quality of life to its residents.

To address needs and aspirations

We wish to place the needs and aspirations of our residents at the heart of what we do, developing a scope of service that wherever possible caters for the physical and emotional needs of every resident.

To create dynamic open spaces

We do not wish to create ghettoes, but instead to build dynamic, open spaces that will house businesses and services alongside residential spaces, relevant to both residents and non-residents alike.

To provide independent support

We aim to support older LGBT people to live independently for longer by the provision of care services that are sensitive to the specific needs of this community.

To provide education and advocacy

We aim to provide an education and advocacy service that represents the needs of the older LGBT community, influencing policy and supporting mainstream providers in offering appropriate services.

Our services could include the following:
