LGBTIQ – Support & Protection Services is an independent Non-Government organisation that assists other community organisations to provide a suite of confidential and community support services. We assist clients with psychological and physical health challenges to better manage daily life challenges in a non-judgemental environment.

Our focus is to assist those who are in need. Our unique proposition is due to the direct personal life experiences of each of our volunteers, all who have had their psychological or physical disability challenges. All of our volunteers have overcome these challenges and are now equipped to better support and empathise with our client’s needs. Direct experience is powerful and real. It is not learnt from a textbook.

Our volunteers are everyday people with direct life experiences around their own complex mental or physical health issues that they have overcome in the past or are currently managing. Due to this direct experience, our volunteers are better able to empathise, support and aid those clients who are currently in a similar situation. We have “walked in the shoes of our clients” and know what support is actually required.

We recruit team members within our organisation, who have been through personal psychological and physical health concerns. Due to the direct experience of their own lives, our volunteers offer greater empathy, understanding, advice and a unique personalised service relevant to each client. We care because we have been there ourselves and want to help.

We value the direct experience of our volunteers, who have “walked in the shoes of our clients” at some time in their own lives. We value the integrity, passion and commitment of our volunteers to our organisational values whilst delivering a personalised service to our clients, rather than a list of qualifications on a volunteer’s CV that they may have accumulated.
Some of the services that our small and new NFP Community Support Organisation can offer:
1. Health and well-being assistance
2. Personal, Shopping and Daily Living Assistance
3. Employment Assistance
4. Creating safer communities, training and practical advice
5. Housing assistance
