Cultural Diversity (Respect, Encouragement and Education)
We are an organisation that believes communities become stronger through diversity of culture, skills and knowledge. You have a right to receive a culturally safe and appropriate service. At the basic level this means we must each respect each other’s cultural identity. It is our role to encourage you to develop self determined cultural pathway and offer the support you may need through this journey.
We aim to provide a service which acknowledges and respects your cultural and spiritual needs. Reasonable efforts will be made to support you to participate in your cultural and spiritual practices in relation to diet, dress and special events.
