Finding Rainbows Project

The Finding Rainbows project, sponsored by Rainbow Resource Centre, is funded in part by New Horizons for Seniors Program. 

Recognizing the Senior LGBT2SQ+ community is heavily underserved, and lacks programming to address specific needs, the project will offer a space that allows community members to connect, share their experiences, and express their needs. The project is organized and led by LGBT2SQ+ adults who are 55 and older.

The project will provide a forum to:

  • Address issues specific to the LGBT2SQ+ aging process
  • Address Social Isolation and Community Engagement in the LGBT2SQ+ Community of Manitoba
  • A needs assessment related to LGBT2SQ+ aging, the results of which will be used to identify conference topics.

Needs Assessment Survey

Please let us know your needs and concerns regarding LGBT2SQ+ seniors by completing our Needs Assessment Survey.  This survey is the first phase of the Finding Rainbows project and looks at the needs of LGBT2SQ+ seniors in Manitoba. Your input is very valuable and will aid the team in building relevant content. The survey is confidential.

The survey is available by DOWNLOAD or ONLINE.
