2019 Current projects:
Rainbow Tick project
The Health Promotion Team are working on a project to improve accessibility to our health service for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and questioning (LGBTIQ) community members. This project aims to progress the organisation through achieving the Rainbow Tick accreditation and create a safer, more inclusive service for our diverse community. We are in the early stages of this project, and welcome feedback and involvement from our local community on how we can work together to achieve this. If you would like to hear more or be involved please contact Ben at: Benjamint@djhs.org.au for further information.
