Rainbow Tick News
Dear Participant

Thank you for your participation in our recent August Rainbow Tick Community of Practice session.

Rainbow Health Victoria hosts these sessions to support and connect those working to develop LGBTIQ safe and welcoming services. The group offers an opportunity to ask questions, share challenges and develop good practice.

Rainbow Tick Community of Practice uses the Rainbow Tick standards as a useful framework to guide best practice, and is open to people from any organisation, at any point in a journey towards LGBTIQ inclusion.

In this session we focused on;
  • Standard 4: A Welcoming and Accessible Organisation
In the current context where many services are providing remote service delivery, how do we signal to LGBTIQ staff, volunteers and service users that we are a safe and welcoming service for them in virtual environments?
  • Standard 6: Culturally Safe and Acceptable Services
How do we identify, assess and manage what the specific challenges and risks are for LGBTIQ staff and service users, in order to ensure cultural safety at this time?

Read our summary document which contains ideas participants shared in this session about how we can translate these standards during the current context of our organisations and modes of delivery during Covid-19.
Thank you as always for your active participation, wonderful ideas and hard work.
Warm regards,

Jami Jones
