Opening Doors London (ODL) from Age UK, with Age UK Camden as the lead agency, and in partnership with Age UKs across London, is the biggest project providing information and support services to and with older lesbian, gay, bisexual and / or transgender (OLGBT) people in the UK. For more information about Age UK Camden, please visit Age UK Camden’s home page
Partner agencies that we currently work with can request a free DVD of the ODL promotional video – ideal for training staff and volunteers.
