Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging

You are welcome to join our community

The Helping Hand community is privileged to be made up of a blend of people from many cultures, religions, identities, backgrounds and beliefs. Our staff, volunteers, residents and clients all form part of our unique community.

We welcome and celebrate all people, and Helping Hand delivers personalised and professional services to meet the needs of older people in South Australia.

We provide services across many lands, traditionally owned by the Kuarna, Narungga, Ngadjuri, Nukunu, Barngarla, and Peramangk people. Helping Hand acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land on which we work and provide services. We pay respect to their culture and heritage, and Elders past, present and emerging.


Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging Strategy (2023-2025)

We are committed to creating a safe and inclusive environment for clients and staff alike, and one way we are demonstrating this is through our inaugural Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging Strategy (2023-2025).

Diversity Inclusion and Belonging Strategy 2023-2025

The vision from this Strategy is that we all, through our actions and behaviors, create an environment where all people are respected and accepted for their diversity, feel a sense of belonging and can be their authentic selves.

Our five key focus areas for 2023-2025

DIB Strategy focus areas - Forgotten Australians/Care Leavers, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, Culturally and Linguistically Diverse, Gender Equality and LGBTQIA+, Homelessness and Financially Disadvantaged
