Helping Hand celebrates and embraces the diversity of people who use our services and who are part of our workforce. We stand alongside lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans/transgender, intersex, queer/questioning and asexual (LGBTIQA+) people in changing community attitudes and practises.
The 17th May is the the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Interphobia & Transphobia (IDAHOBIT 2021).
IDAHOBIT 2021 celebrates LGBTIQA+ communities around the world and strives to raise awareness for the work still needed to combat discrimination. On this important day, Helping Hand reaffirms its commitment to:
- respect individuals for who they are
- be inclusive whether a person discloses or not
- provide health and personal support based on the individual.
