The LGBTIQ Legal Service is a health justice partnership between St Kilda Legal and Thorne Harbour Health and can assist LGBTIQ+ clients across Victoria with legal issues including discrimination, unfair dismissal, change of name/gender, Centrelink and NDIS appeals, criminal law, family violence and evictions. We conduct face to face appointments at Thorne Harbour Health, and can provide telephone advice for those living regionally or who cannot travel.
Through a range of projects, Thorne Harbour Health delivers community-led and culturally appropriate services that improve the health and wellbeing of LGBTI people living throughout Victoria. The organisation is built on a historical foundation of peer-to-peer and professional expertise in services and programs delivered by staff and volunteers and in partnership with other organisations.
The GLLOs provide a contact point for LGBTI community members and offer advice, assistance and recommendations to Victoria Police on the policing needs of LGBTI people. There are Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex Liaison Officers located at various police stations throughout Victoria. By calling a GLLO, victims can discuss the incident then work out the most suitable process for the matter to be reported.
WorkingOUT is a free specialist employment service for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and gender diverse or intersex identified people with a disability or mental health condition that may be a barrier to employment. It is a unique service and the only one in Australia catering to the LGBTIQ+ community.
