LGBTIQ Inclusion Coordinator

According to the evidence before the Victorian Royal Commission into Family Violence, people in lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and gender diverse, and intersex (LGBTIQ) communities experience family violence at or above the same rate as non- LGBTIQ counterparts, but experience barriers to identification, reporting and accessing safe and appropriate support. The Royal Commission called for a focus on building a more inclusive service system to respond to the needs of all Victorians experiencing family violence.

As a means of creating greater inclusion and responsiveness to people from LGBTIQ communities, the Royal Commission also called for all family violence organisations to undergo whole of organisation Rainbow Tick accreditation. The Rainbow Tick is a national accreditation program that supports organisations to understand and implement LGBTIQ inclusive service delivery against six standards and reassures LGBTIQ consumers and staff that Rainbow Tick organisations will be aware of, and responsive to, their needs. In response, the Victorian Government, through Family Safety Victoria, is supporting a number of organisations to complete the Rainbow Tick accreditation.

DV Vic is currently recruiting for an LGBTIQ Inclusion Coordinator will work with the nineteen Rainbow Tick organisations to support their efforts towards accreditation and to build relationships between them, while also working with the broader family violence service sector to enhance LGBTIQ inclusion and to establish collaborative working relationships with LGBTIQ specific services.

The successful candidate will have strong skills in project establishment and management, stakeholder engagement, and the capacity to respond and tailor advice and resources for the sector.
