Resources to make workplaces LGBTIQA+ inclusive

Everyone deserves to access services with the confidence that they will be respected and treated fairly, free from discrimination.

This page provides information about accreditation, training and resources that can assist your organisation to become more LGBTIQA+ inclusive.

Rainbow Tick accreditation

The Rainbow Tick is a quality framework that helps organisations show that they are safe, inclusive and affirming services and employers for the LGBTIQA+ community.

Rainbow Tick has been developed by Rainbow Health Victoria. You can learn more about Rainbow Tick here:

For South Australian organisations interested in pursuing Rainbow Tick accreditation, it is recommended that leaders within the organisation participate in SHINE SA’s HOW2 training to gain the tools needed to implement Rainbow Tick.

Various organisations in South Australia provide LGBTIQA+ inclusion training:

  • Bfriend – LGBTIQA+ awareness and specialist training for community service organisations
