CBR 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 AIDS ACTION COUNCIL

A PEER BASED, GRASS ROOTS ORGANISATION ACTIVELY WORKING IN THE ACT AND REGION WITH THE VISION OF CONNECTED AND SUPPORTIVE COMMUNITIES THAT ARE FREE OF NEW HIV TRANSMISSIONS, MARGINALISATION, DISCRIMINATION AND STIGMA. We work to help end HIV transmission by supporting access to testing, early treatment and promoting safe sex. The Council provides information, education and health promotion to support the whole community to understand HIV and its associated personal and social impacts. We run support groups, workshops, and workplace education sessions; offer counselling and peer support; and deliver a range of information services and events for the broader LGBTIQ community, including our much-loved annual Fair Day. Counselling is provided for all members of the community regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, cultural background, religious belief or economic circumstances. Through counselling we provide assessments, support, advocacy and referral for a range of issues including: coming to terms with your sexuality, emotional and physical health, relationships, employment, education and accommodation.

Peer education workshops cover a range of topics and provide an opportunity to discuss issues that matter in a semi-structured, respectful and confidential environment. Recent workshops for gay, bisexual and same-sex attracted men have included:

Within the counselling service we prioritise:

• Online safety

• People living with and/or impacted by HIV

• Mature Aged Gays Men’s Network (40+)

• Sex and gender diverse individuals and their families

• Genesis for newly diagnosed HIV positive

• People experiencing same sex domestic violence or homophobic violence • Same sex relationship issues • Sexual identity issues Here at the Council we are also lucky to house the Sex Worker Outreach Program (SWOP). SWOP educates sex workers about safe sex practices, and works to have easily accessible resources for culturally and linguistically diverse sex workers. SWOP also aims to change community perceptions of sex workers, and lobbies for legal frameworks and the eradication of discrimination against sex workers. You are welcome to drop in for a chat with the SWOP worker. Calling ahead is a good idea to make sure they are available.

• Sex Positivity Sex Positivity embodies a progressive attitude towards sex and pleasure. Advancements in the prevention and treatment of HIV present a meaningful opportunity to engage gay and bisexual men in new conversations about their health, supporting them in getting the sex they want. For women who identify as lesbian, bisexual and same-sex attracted we have our regular and very popular Stepping Out workshops. Workshops offered for the whole community are based on need and demand and currently include financial literacy, mindfulness meditation, resume writing and legal issues. For further information on current groups and workshops, please contact us or check our social media feeds.

We believe peer education is a bedrock for educating, supporting and engaging with the community. We complement our peer-work with an evidence-based approach to ensure our programs and services are founded on latest research and respond to emerging needs of the communities we work with.

There are many ways you can support our work or connect with other Council supporters. You can become a member, make a donation, become a volunteer, attend one of our events or participate in a workshop. Whatever you do, you will be helping us look after the health and wellbeing of people in our communities.

We offer regular peer-led workshops and groups facilitated by our staff and our skilled volunteers.

NORTHSIDE COMMUNITY SERVICE

NEW PARTNERSHIPS MEAN NEW OPPORTUNITIES, NEW LESSONS AND NEW SUCCESSES. Northside are working collaboratively to create improvements to our services, strengthening existing links in the community and identifying new opportunities — for us, for our partners, and most importantly for you. Our team has been working with Canberrans for more than 35 years — while we’re continuing to provide our existing services, we’re identifying and acting on new opportunities and collaborations. In 2015 we formalised our partnership with the AIDS Action Council of the ACT, Sexual Health & Family Planning ACT and A Gender Agenda. Our partnership ensures our services and staff across each agency are informed, inclusive, aware and exceptional. In the future we hope to see our programs and services expand and develop further, but courage in practice will always underpin everything we do: a commitment to high quality, accessible services individually tailored to meet the needs of the community, and meet the needs of each individual who invites us into their life. What does this mean for you, as a community member? Northside knows you’re the expert in your own life, and we’re just here to offer support where you need it. And when you don’t need it, we’ll enjoy watching you succeed independently.

20

We also know we can’t do it alone. That’s why we have been working closely with our friends at The AIDS Action Council, A Gender Agenda, Canberra Gay & Lesbian Qwire, FUSE Magazine and the broader LGBTI community to ensure our services and staff are informed, inclusive and aware. We are always on the look out for volunteers to join our team so that together we can make sure no one gets left behind — ever!

SEXUAL HEALTH & FAMILY PLANNING ACT WE ARE WORKING TO IMPROVE SEXUAL AND REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH IN THE CANBERRA COMMUNITY. SHFPACT is Canberra’s sexual health promotion charity, working to improve sexual and reproductive health in the Canberra community for more than 40 years. With a focus on promoting human rights and social justice, SHFPACT provides a wide range of clinical, education and training, and health information services to individuals, couples, families, workplaces, schools and community groups.

From supporting school-based sexuality and relationships education, through health information to assist all people to make informed decisions, to specialised reproductive and sexual health clinical services, SHFPACT has been at the forefront in advancing a rights-based, inclusive perspective on human sexuality and relationships, supporting individuals, couples and the community to address their needs in these important areas of health and wellbeing.

SHFPACT’s multidisciplinary team works to identify and overcome barriers to health for priority populations such as young people, people who are financially disadvantaged, culturally and linguistically diverse people, people with disabilities, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, plus the LGBTIQ community.

We are proud of our role serving LGBTIQ Canberrans, including the provision of leading anti-homophobia training in schools, supporting the establishment of peer youth networks, and ensuring our training program content reflects the sexual and gender diversity of our community.

We provide clinical and counselling services, health education, health promotion projects and programs, professional development training, and information services in reproductive and sexual health, sexuality and relationships to the wider Canberra community, working in partnership with many other community and government organisations.

SHFPACT is proud to work with its community partners to support schools to be safe and inclusive communities for same-sex attracted, intersex and gender diverse students, staff and families. We provide school communities with a suite of supports to equip school staff and leaders with skills, practical ideas and greater confidence to lead positive change.
