LGBTIQ Communities

At MacKillop, we welcome lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, gender diverse and intersex people at our services. We believe in the right of all people to be treated justly and fairly and we act with respect for all people.

We recognise the LGBTIQ community may experience unique challenges in accessing supports and services. In response, we pledge to provide inclusive and non-discriminatory services to LGBTIQ 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 LGBTIQ-inclusive practice. Organisations that undertake Rainbow Tick accreditation commit to continuously reviewing and improving the care they provide to the LGBTIQ community.
