MacKillop celebrates and draws strength from diversity and respects the dignity of all people. We value an inclusive culture where lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, gender diverse, intersex and asexual people (LGBTIQA+) have the right to be safe.
At MacKillop, we welcome lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, gender diverse and intersex people at our services. We recognise the LGBTIQA+ community may experience unique challenges in accessing supports and services. In response, we pledge to provide inclusive and non-discriminatory services to LGBTIQA+ clients. We commit to developing LGBTIQ-inclusive practices across all our services and creating welcoming and inclusive environments for clients, staff, volunteers and foster carers.
To support us with this ongoing focus, MacKillop is proudly undertaking the Rainbow Tick accreditation. The Rainbow Tick provides a benchmark for LGBTIQA+ inclusive practice. Organisations that undertake Rainbow Tick accreditation commit to continuously reviewing and improving the care they provide to the LGBTIQA+ community.
