The Rainbow Tick is an accreditation consisting of six national standards designed to demonstrate LGBTI inclusive practice and service delivery. Services that receive the Rainbow Tick will have the opportunity to be listed in a national register of LGBTI accredited organisations.

Applicable to organisations in the health and human services sector, the Rainbow Tick is a world first and was developed by Gay and Lesbian Health Victoria (GLHV) in consultation with Quality Innovation Performance (QIP), who are now recognised as the accreditation provider for these standards.

The HOW2 Program, also developed by GLHV, consists of four training workshops run over six months with the goal of supporting organisations to develop and implement LGBTI inclusive practices and to meet each of the six standards of the Rainbow Tick.

To assist you with preparing for Rainbow Tick accreditation, or to assist with developing inclusive service provision in other sectors, we offer the HOW2 training program and LGBTI-inclusion consulting services to ensure your organisation can demonstrate competency and meet all the required six standards:

  1. Organisational capability
  2. Consumer consultation
  3. LGBTI cultural safety
  4. Disclosure and documentation
  5. Professional development
  6. Access and intake
