Diversity and Inclusion

At Anglicare Victoria, our focus is to create a more just society which means eliminating discrimination in the services we deliver and the workplace we provide. Welcoming, supporting and celebrating diverse talents, knowledge, perspectives and experiences strengthens our workforce and our relationships with our community.

We strive to be an inclusive, safe and responsive organisation which promotes diversity and actively supports inclusion for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, people from LGBTIQ+ communities, people with disabilities, people from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds, people of all ages, people with caring responsibilities and people with diverse religious beliefs or affiliations.

Being a diverse and inclusive organisation goes to the very heart of our work: transforming the future of families, children and young people.

“A client recently shared with our program that they were very nervous attending an education session. They stated that when they saw a little rainbow tick on the reception window they instantly felt reassured they were in a safe environment.”

Rainbow Tick

In September 2019 Anglicare Victoria received the Rainbow Tick – a national standard in diversity. This Accreditation reassures our clients and staff that AV is a welcoming and safe organisation for everyone.

Our genuine commitment to inclusion and diversity for our clients and staff is an ongoing journey. We will continue to strive for improvement to ensure that diversity and a culture of inclusiveness is embedded throughout AV.
