Northside Community Service is proud to collaborate with LGBTIQ Canberrans as part of the LGBTIQ Community Consortium.
The Consortium is a partnership of four agencies brought together by the common goal of ensuring health, wellbeing, access, social inclusion and equity within the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer (LGBTIQ) community.
The Consortium is a robust, inclusive partnership demonstrating the ability of four Canberra based organisations to work together and build a strong foundation that supports the LGBTIQ community into the future.
The Consortium will encourage and build resilience by harnessing the strengths and resources of the LGBTIQ community, including families, friends, supporters and allies. Working with their established services, the Consortium will further develop a comprehensive suite of programs for the LGBTIQ community in the ACT.
This will be achieved through the collaboration of existing partners and stakeholders, while identifying and cultivating greater involvement of the LGBTIQ community, and engaging mainstream agencies, government, other community groups and business communities to achieve these goals.
The CBR LGBTIQ Community Consortium is made up of the following community organisations:
- AIDS Action Council of the ACT
- A Gender Agenda (AGA)
- Northside Community Service (Northside)
- Sexual Health & Family Planning ACT (SHFPACT)
