LGBTIQA+ : Improving inclusive practice

Gippsland Lakes Complete Health (GLCH) recognises and values the diversity of our staff and clients and aims to be an inclusive service provider to all members of our community.

We have also been participating in a pilot project called LGBTIQA+ inclusive practice for community health services run by the Department of Health and Human Services. The project will develop, pilot and evaluate a suite of tools and resources that support LGBTIQA+ inclusive and responsive service planning and practice in community health services. We are excited about launching the tools and resources within our organisation and making improvements for our LGBTIQA+ staff and clients.

All feedback welcome!
