Welcoming all communities

We work in solidarity with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as Australia’s First Peoples and as the traditional owners and custodians of this land. We celebrate diversity and value the lived experience of people of every faith, ethnicity, age, disability, culture, language, gender identity, sex and sexual orientation. We welcome lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, gender diverse and non-binary, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ+) people at our services. We pledge to provide inclusive and non-discriminatory services.

The work we do is all about giving people the support they need to live happy and meaningful lives. We are committed to being people-focused and rights-based.

We have worked alongside local communities across both states for over 100 years.

LGBTIQ+ Inclusion

For the first time in our short history as a state-wide organisation, Uniting Vic.Tas was an official participant in the 2020 Midsumma Pride March in Melbourne in February.

As a Uniting employee and member of the LGBTIQ+ community, I was made to feel welcome.
