We support diverse gender, sex, and sexuality
We are committed to creating a positive work environment for our LGBTIQ community, employees, volunteers, and students. The LGBTIQ community includes people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and gender diverse, intersex, queer, and questioning.
We are proud to announce that DPV Health has achieved a Rainbow Tick Accreditation, which means that our health services are inclusive, safe and friendly for LGBTIQ service users and staff!
The Rainbow Tick Accreditation Program assesses organisations against standards developed by Rainbow Health Victoria. This accreditation is a way for our organisation to show the community that we are constantly improving the quality of care and service delivery for every member that we serve.
The journey of receiving the Rainbow Tick Accreditation has been insightful and will greatly help our organisation in making informed decisions with the utmost respect to our staff as well as community members from all walks of life.

“As an inclusive organisation, it is essential we stand beside our industry partners and the queer community to support gender and sexuality diversity in Australia.”
– DPV Health CEO Don Tidbury
The journey started in 2017 when an internal committee was set up to undertake a detailed needs analysis in consultation with the local LGBTIQ community and their allies. The aim of the needs analysis was to learn about the lived experience of LGBTIQ people in the area, to identify gaps in service delivery, and make recommendations for change. We completed this needs analysis in 2020, in the midst of COVID with over 151 community members that helped us by participating in this project.
The report not only contributed to our Rainbow Tick Accreditation but also identified part of our LGBTIQ population and their needs, enabling DPV Health to develop a Rainbow Tick Maturity plan that addresses the recommendations that were brought to light during this initiative.
Over the 3-year period, the staff of DPV Health took key steps to address topics highlighted by the community members. Some of the initiatives included –
Some of the crucial action points that we have been working on include:
The ‘You Are Who You Say You Are’ report findings will be shared at International Transgender Day of Visibility and IDAHOBIT Day forums in Hume and Whittlesea in 2021. The forums will advocate for a unified response to LGBTIQ health needs across DPV Health’s catchment and help determine the strategic direction of ensuring culturally safe and inclusive health services.
