Helping diverse communities

The makeup of the population has changed dramatically in recent decades as a result of progressive Australian Government immigration policies which have encouraged the development of a vibrant and cohesive multicultural society.

As the community has become more complex and diverse, so have its needs and the requirement for community service providers to respond.

For our part, Relationships Australia Victoria has evolved from an organisation delivering primarily "marriage guidance" services to a largely 'Anglo' client base, to one that offers a diverse range of relationship support services that aim to help all members of the community regardless of their religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, lifestyle choice, cultural background or economic circumstances.

We strongly support the Australian Government's vision to create a multicultural society in which all Australians feel valued and have the opportunity to participate fully.

We have a comprehensive program to reinforce our commitment to diversity and social inclusion and build our capacity to meet the needs of people from all cultures.

We have produced a report entitled A state of inclusion to highlight some of the initiatives we are undertaking.

Please contact us if you would like additional information about our social inclusion program.

Andrew Bickerdike is the Chief Executive Officer
