Social Inclusion Statement

Belgravia Leisure strives to support all in the community to benefit from the services, programs, opportunities and facilities it provides.

Through participation in these experiences, all people are provided access to opportunities that can contribute to improved health and happiness, irrespective of any personal characteristic.

Leadership is recognised as the lynchpin that underpins a culture of social inclusion, and across the Belgravia Leisure, our leaders have embraced and resourced social inclusion.

These leaders have actively promoted the culture of social inclusion, resourced the roles, negotiated the challenges and supported the strategies that has led to an approach that welcomes, supports and includes all, regardless of characteristic, background or circumstance.

Staff are the critical feature that enables the promotion of social inclusion, and across Belgravia Leisure staff have embraced and acted to support a socially inclusive culture that has enable successful programs, services, employment and facility access to occur for people of any characteristic.

In support of social inclusion, Belgravia Leisure works to engage with others to understand, respect and benefit from the views, needs, preferences and priorities of people from diverse backgrounds and kindred organisations. Through co-design, collective effort results in better targeted responses, improved use of resources, which combined create improved outcomes and support sustainment.

Belgravia Leisure seeks to be innovative and show leadership in the areas it operates and has embraced a ‘continuous improvement’ approach that includes the collection of evidence-related outcomes for the services, programs, opportunities and facilities it provides, which in turn forms the basis for excellence.

WE
ACKNOWLEDGE

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the traditional custodians of the land known as Australia on which we meet and work. We recognise their continuing connection to land, place, water and community.

WE
RECOGNISE

The unique role of the Māori as Tangata Whenua and embrace Te Tiriti o Waitangi recognising Maori as tino rangatiratanga of Aotearoa / New Zealand while embracing the three guiding principles of the Treaty – Partnership, Participation, and Protection.

WE
SUPPORT

The LGBTQIA+ communities of Australia and New Zealand, and commit to embracing diversity, inclusion, acceptance, and equal opportunity for all genders and sexualities.

Belgravia Leisure Welcomes our LGBTQIA+ Community to Leisure and Sport

SUPPORTING OUR LGBTQIA+ COMMUNITY

Belgravia Leisure proudly welcomes, supports and includes all people into the facilities, programs, services and employment it offers to communities across Australia and New Zealand. We do this by engaging with each community to better understand local priorities and preferences, and through collaboration and partnership, we act to welcome all to leisure and sport. People from the LGBTQIA+ community are actively welcomed and supported by us, as are all others.

Our welcome and support to the LGBTQIA+ community are ongoing, and our actions, strategies and policies confirm this. Through supporting participation in leisure and sport, we recognise that we are helping people gain opportunities for improved health and happiness.

We ask all to stand with us in welcoming the LGBTQIA+ community to leisure and sport.
