Silver Rainbows is a social network for older lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people in Cheshire. Older LGBT people are more likely to be socially isolated for a wide range of reasons on top of which existing social activities for LGBT people are currently dominated by younger people meaning that older people often don’t always feel welcome or comfortable.

Silver Rainbows has addressed this issue by creating a new social network (including a virtual network) shaped and driven by older people. The project also includes reminiscence work (capturing and recording the stories of older LGBT people) whilst also raising awareness about the needs of the older LGBT network with service providers across the borough.
