Further Information for People With Diverse Needs

Council’s home and community support services for older people recognise everyone’s needs are different.  We recognise and acknowledge the diversity of the Whitehorse community and peoples’ wide range of needs and characteristics.  That’s why we consider your choices and respect your individual preferences and decisions when planning and providing your care. 

Our services promote inclusion and work sensitively with people from diverse backgrounds including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, Veterans, LGBTI people, people experiencing financial disadvantage and people facing homelessness.  We work to understand your unique qualities and circumstances and tailor supports to your individual needs and characteristics.

Contact us  if you’d like to discuss your particular requirements or to hear more about our approach to recognising diversity and supporting your choices and dignity.
