We celebrate diversity as a representation of all the ways we differ, which includes culture, ethnicity, colour, religious beliefs, disability, marital or family status, socioeconomic background, sexual orientation, gender identity, sexual preference, language and other areas of potential difference. We support an environment which respects, protects and welcomes people of all cultural traditions, faiths and sexual preferences and orientation.
We embrace Australia as a vibrant, multicultural nation, from the oldest continuous culture of our First Australians, to the cultures of our diverse communities from around the world. We promote diversity, equity and inclusivity through fostering an environment of respect, dignity, mutual-learning, openness and an appreciation of difference. Our aim is to provide a place where everyone feels safe and confident to be themselves.
Our organisation’s Diversity and Inclusion Strategic Plan represents the deep connection that we share with our residents to partner in a care-model and delivery that values the diverse mix of cultures of the residents entrusted to our care. Our collaborative and consumer-centred approach provides care and services that are both respectful and appropriate to each individual resident’s identity. By incorporating our diversity plan into our daily operations, we are putting our mission statement into practice and delivering on the vision of the organisation.
The aim of our Diversity and Inclusion Strategic Plan is to meet and exceed the needs of each of our residents in a dignified and culturally respectful manner. The plan further enhances the warm, welcoming and inclusive environment of our facility.
We welcome everyone, exactly as they are.
