Rainbow Tick Accreditation
The Royal Commission into Family Violence (RCFV) highlighted the lack of LGBTIQA+ family violence service responses, noting that people from LGBTIQA+ communities can feel invisible in the family violence service system. It is acknowledged that Aboriginal LGBITQA+ people are also dealing with overlapping forms of discrimination and power imbalances, including racism and homophobia and/or transphobia. This can increase barriers to access appropriate services and can compound the impact of family violence.
The RCFV made a recommendation for the Victorian Government funded family violence service providers to achieve Rainbow Tick accreditation. The Rainbow Tick is a national accreditation program that supports organisations to understand and implement LGBITQA+ inclusive service delivery against six standards.

The Project Officer will assist Mallee Family Care in undertaking the Rainbow Tick accreditation process and work with the organisation as a whole; Board of Directors, Executive Team, Leadership Team and staff members to ensure the Rainbow Tick Accreditation requirements are applied across the organisation and its services.
The six Rainbow Tick Standards that Organisations must meet are:
  • Organisational capability;
  • Workforce development;
  • Client participation;
  • Welcoming and accessible organisation;
  • Disclosure and documentation;
  • Culturally safe and acceptable services
 This position will support the preparations for and achievement of Rainbow Tick accreditation for Mallee Family by reviewing existing policy, procedures and practices.  This role will also develop policy, organise training and participate in appropriate forums and meetings as well as coordinate the Rainbow Tick and RAP Working Groups.
