For more than 30 years, Community Support has responded to the urgent needs of people living with HIV. The program has expanded to offer support services to members of the LGBTI community who are not HIV-positive as well.
Community Support's LGBTI Services:
NOTE: During the COVID-19 pandemic, Rainbow Connection has been expanded to support ANY LGBTI people isolated or impacted by COVID-19 - regardless of age or HIV status. Read more in the COVID-19 Services Update.
Rainbow Connection is aimed at reducing social isolation among older members of the LGBTI community.
Community Support volunteers can help in many ways, including visits to client homes, meal preparation, outings to see a movie or to have a coffee and a chat.
Any person in the LGBTI community may apply for support from Rainbow Connection, whether they are living in their own home or an aged care facility.
