Lighthouse Diversity Statement

Lighthouse celebrates diversity and affirms the right of access, equity, and equality for every young person, staff member, and volunteer in the Lighthouse community.

Our organisation is inclusive of all sexual orientations and gender identities. We also practice from a position of cultural safety and awareness, across diverse languages, religions, and cultures.

We respect, respond, and continue to learn about the unique needs of our First Nations young people. Lighthouse recognises that all people with a disability have the right to be included in meaningful ways in our community.
