BestCare4LGBTQI+ responds to the European priorities regarding inclusion and diversity by:
Sensitising professionals, service providers and the general audience to issues faced by LGBTQI+ populations in general, and in terms of accessing services and care services.
Providing tools for effective inclusiveness: not only through posture and attitudes of the professionals, but also through developing sets of strategies and tools, and possibly even through design of residences or any other practice that have been tested and proven to support the positive integration of LGBTQI+ members within residential care facilities and home care services.
Elaborating a grid referencing a set of practices that effectively support inclusion of LGBTQI+ residents that users, workers as well as other parties of interest can refer to e.g., Awarding a Badge of Excellence for Inclusive Residential care of Older LGBTQI+ service users.
Creating a platform gathering best practices for making residential care facilities and home care services inclusive towards LGBTQI+ service users.
