Abstract

Underpinning social care is a value-base that includes a commitment to empower service users, to promote social inclusion and to demonstrate a respect for diversity. Realising these values means developing awareness and understanding of how they translate into particular ways of working with different groups and individual service users. This OutLine identifies five key approaches for promoting more equitable provision for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people. It is supported by a range of examples taken from the evidence base for social care and sexuality.
