Final update

This is the final update on the project. We have now completed writing up our findings. We have produced the following reports:

Older LGBT+ People and COVID-19 Summary Report
Older LGBT+ People and COVID-19 Highlights Report
Older Lesbians and COVID-19
Older Gay Men and COVID-19

And we have published the following articles:

Hafford‐Letchfield, T., Toze, M., & Westwood, S. (2021). Unheard voices: A qualitative study of LGBT+ older people experiences during the first wave of the COVID‐19 pandemic in the UK. Health & Social Care in the Community,

Toze, M., Westwood, S., & Hafford-Letchfield, T. (2021). Social support and unmet needs among older trans and gender non-conforming people during the COVID-19 ‘lockdown’ in the UK. International Journal of Transgender Health, 1-15,

We may still write further articles.

Trish also presented our findings at the Social Work and Sexualities Global Online Conference 2021.
