Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender and Intersex Communities Plan

Council’s Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) Plan 2014-2017 outlines our commitment to Banyule’s LGBTI communities. The Plan was developed with advice from Council’s LGBTI Advisory Committee and formally adopted by Council on 15 December 2014. The LGBTI Plan has used Banyule’s Inclusion, Access and Equity Framework (IAEF) which identifies three key goals for our diverse communities:

  • Health and wellbeing
  • Community participation
  • Economic participation

The IAEF also identifies three core strategies which describe the work Council will lead and support to achieve the goals. The three core strategies are:

  • Being an accessible and equitable organisation that provides inclusive services and practices
  • Supporting local services to be available and inclusive and advocating on issues of importance to diverse communities
  • Contributing to building inclusive and equitable communities

These strategies will be progressed through the development of annual action plans that identify specific actions and projects.
