ABOUT THE TEAM

The Our Voices, Our Lives, Our Way project is a joint initiative between the National LGBTI Health Alliance (the Alliance) and National Ethnic Disability Alliance (NEDA).
ABOUT THE ALLIANCE
The National LGBTI Health Alliance (the Alliance)
is the national peak health organisation in Australia for organisations and individuals that provide health-related programs, services and research focused on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex people (LGBTI) and other sexuality, gender, and bodily diverse people and communities. As the national peak body for LGBTI health in Australia, our mission is to provide a national focus to improve health outcomes for LGBTI people through policy, advocacy, representation, research evidence, and capacity building.
The National LGBTI Health Alliance is an Equal Opportunity Employer and as such, we encourage LGBTI people with disability to apply for this role.
All roles at the Alliance place the needs of LGBT Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, BrotherBoys and SisterGirls as a priority across all of our programs. It is a requirement that all staff ensure that all aspects of their work that LGBT Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, BrotherBoys and SisterGirls are considered and incorporated.
The project’s aim is to increase social connection, self-advocacy, volunteering and community engagement through individual capacity building across LGBTI People with Disability (PWD) communities in Australia.
The core focus of this role is to ensure the Alliance and NEDA delivers the objectives specified in the Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) funding grant. The work of this role is guided by the key performance indicators in the Alliance’s program contracts.

The training will be designed to strengthen LBBTI PWD’s existing knowledge, build their skills and confidence to set, self-manage and achieve personal goals and to participate in social, economic, and civic life.
- Collaborate across State and Territory jurisdictions to create meaningful and transformative activities that will link LGBTIPWD across Australia and result in an increase in social connection, self-advocacy, volunteering and community engagement.
