Grampians Community Health is proud to be an accredited Rainbow tick organisation since 2012
We support and recognise the importance of safe and inclusive service delivery for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and queer (LGBTIQ) people in our community.
“As a leading health organisation in the region, we take very seriously our duty to support equality for all and provide support to some of the most marginalised groups in our community. “Said Gemma Beavis, chair of the Rainbow committee at GCH.
“We also understand that people in the GLBTIQ community are more likely to experience and be diagnosed with a mental health disorder and be susceptible to discrimination and exclusion in their community” Gemma went on to say.
Grampians Community Health has an established team of Rainbow Committee members who have knowledge of the issues faced by LGBTIQ Australians and are available to speak with for consultations at any time. Grampians Community Health prides itself on the support available for LGBTIQ Australians and provides access to social support groups across the district for young people under the age of 25.
To access any of the free and safe services offered by Grampians Community Health or to hear more about what is available in your area please contact the dedicated intake workers on 53587400 or call into our offices in Stawell, Ararat and Horsham.
The Equal Heart artwork was made by:
“Josh, Emily, Sarah, Norm and Georgia”
The artwork was made by weaving fabric through chicken wire creating a tapestry representing the LGBTI+ community.
The partnership between Grampians Community Health, Central Grampians Llen & Juno Vesta facilitated the project in July 2017.
