Surveying Metro Richmond’s Facilities For LGBT Older Adults
VCU Social Work students are pulling together information about inclusive facilities for older LGBT adults in Richmond and surrounding counties.
More information below:
If you identify as a gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgendered person, 50 years of age or older, and reside in either Richmond, Virginia or one of its surrounding counties, you may be eligible to participate in this quick needs assessment on programs, services, and facilities available to older adults. This 10 minute, 28-question needs assessment will collect data on service availability, accessibility, and support for older gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgendered adults within the Richmond, Virginia area. You can play an important role in helping us understand the needs of GLBT older adults in the area.
If you choose to participate in this project, your completed survey will be coded using a unique identifier (not your name) and stored in a secure location. The collected and analyzed results of this project will aid in identifying gaps in accessing and receiving services that are supportive and are sensitive towards older adult gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered issues and needs. If you choose to participate, we ask that you please fill out the online survey at the following web-address:
All responses collected from this survey are confidential. The data collected from this survey will not be published. The results of this project will be used to fulfill the graduation requirements for an MSW in Social Work at Virginia Commonwealth University. Your decision to take part in this study is voluntary. You are free to choose not to take part in the study. At anytime while completing the survey, if you decide you would not like to continue, feel free to stop and close-out the survey.
