Supporting LGBTIQ+

Are you passionate about social justice and want to know more about inclusivity? Do you want to better understand the experiences of LGBTIQ+ people?
Castlemaine District Community Health (CDCH) has received funding for a two year grant – Castlemaine Takes Pride – to improve the wellbeing of people in the LGBTIQ+ community.
CDCH prevention and allied services manager Louise Falconer said there’s a huge amount of goodwill in the shire and they want to build on that.
“The first step to improving health and wellbeing is to create a supportive environment free of discrimination,” Ms Falconer said.
“In September we’ll hold community workshops to give everyone in Mount Alexander the chance to find out more about LGBTIQ+ issues and about how they can support their LGBTIQ+ friends.
“We want everyone to come along. Doesn’t matter how much you know or don’t know. The most important thing is that you want to learn,” she said.
