The LGBTI Connect Team
Providing access to aged-care services in a culturally safe way.
About LGBTI Connect
Co-created with members from the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) communities, ECH LGBTI Connect provides culturally safe access, navigation, advocacy and connection to aged care services for and from LGBTI community members in South Australia.
ECH is South Australia’s only Rainbow Tick accredited aged-care service provider.
ECH is a not-for-profit enterprise highly committed to being inclusive of clients and staff with differing backgrounds.
In 2017, ECH became the first – and only – South Australian aged care provider to receive Rainbow Tick accreditation by meeting six national standards of inclusive practice and service delivery for LGBTI clients.
The Rainbow Tick accreditation demonstrates to current and future ECH clients, as well as ECH employees, the commitment ECH makes to being a safe, inclusive and welcoming space for members of the LGBTI community.
Meet the Team
The ECH LGBTI Connect Team comprises five older members of the LGBTI community with a deep appreciation of the fears, concerns and challenges older members of the LGBTI community face as they age.
A conversation or meeting with an ECH LGBTI Connector will be culturally safe, highly confidential and non-judgemental.
