Rainbow Health Victoria is a program within the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society at La Trobe University funded by the Victorian government to promote the health and wellbeing of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) Victorians.

Through collaboration with government, researchers, community organisations and service providers we produce high quality research, knowledge translation, evidence-based training, resources, policy advice and service accreditation through the Rainbow Tick.  

Rainbow Health Victoria has developed a suite of innovative trainings that incorporate the research findings ARCSHS with the lived experience of LGBTI people to provide evidence-based and engaging learning experiences.

We offer a range of training and professional development options for individuals and organisations aimed at improving the quality of services they provide to LGBTI people.

All staff professional development

Rainbow Health Victoria offers 4 hour and 6 hour training sessions that explore LGBTI people’s everyday lives and the ways in which systemic discrimination affects their health and wellbeing.

  • The 4 hour session assists participants to develop knowledge that can then begin to be applied in behaviours, skills and practice within an organisation.
  • In the 6 hour session participants are introduced to frameworks and tools for organisational change in order to see how they can embed LGBTIQ+ inclusion within the systems of their organisation.

Organisational Change

  • Rainbow Health Victoria offers a HOW2 Program that promotes the development of LGBTI-inclusive health and human services.
  • The Program consists of four workshops run over six months and assists participants in implementing LGBTI-inclusive practices, protocols and procedures within their organisation.
