Expression of Interest - Rainbow Health Australia's How2 Training

Thank you for taking an interest in How2, Rainbow Health Australia’s organisational capacity building program for LGBTIQ+ inclusion. This program reflects the shared commitment of Rainbow Health Australia, the Victorian Government and service providers to the safe and effective engagement of LGBTIQ+ people in health, community and other services.

Why this program? We believe LGBTIQ+ people deserve to be treated with dignity, respect and care when they access services. We recognise and affirm the genuine ambition of service providers to be LGBTIQ+ inclusive. This program will help you embed LGBTIQ+ inclusive practices within your organisation and create lasting cultural change.

What does it involve? The program comprises of weekly sessions of self-directed online modules and live online workshops. The main course content will run over 7 weeks, with ongoing support available via communities of practice for an additional 6 months after course completion. Organisations will receive a variety of supporting materials to guide internal work and will be supported to develop an implementation plan for LGBTIQ+ inclusion for their organisations. The time commitment to complete this work is a minimum 3 hours per week over 6 months with additional time needed for implementation of the plan from the whole of organisation. Many organisations will then progress, as a separate process from this program, to be assessed and accredited with the Rainbow Tick. 

The program draws on values of: 

  • collaboration 
  • respect for the unique expertise of service providers and people with lived experience
  • intersectionality
  • the creation of safe supportive environments for change 
  • supporting organisations to begin a continuous journey of change.

Can my organisation take part? Is there subsidisation available? There are a number of funding streams for specific sectors, funded by the Department of Families, Fairness and Housing as part of the implementation of Pride in our future: Victoria’s LGBTIQ+ strategy 2022-32, and by the Department of Health. We’ll ask you a couple of questions in the expression of interest form to ascertain if you meet the criteria for these funding programs.
