In 2019, VincentCare launched a comprehensive review of its sites, systems, programs and practices to identify how best to support LGBTIQ+ clients and maximise their housing outcomes. Acting on that review has resulted in Rainbow Tick Accreditation, leadership in the sector, an increase in referrals of LGBTIQ+ clients from other organisations and positive feedback from clients.
VincentCare wishes to congratulate the two other finalists in this category – Fearless Movement Collective and Thorne Harbour Health COVID-19 Response.
