At UnitingCare we celebrate and believe in the strength of a diverse and inclusive workforce to help us achieve the best outcomes for the people we support. The people we support as well as our workforce are diverse in race, gender, age, cultural background, language, religion, sexuality, abilities, interests and choices. We connect with and support communities far and wide across Queensland. We respect diversity in all forms of interactions with the people we support, their families and with our volunteers and employees.
UnitingCare is committed to Reconciliation and through our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), we are working on initiatives in the areas of equal opportunity, cultural awareness, cultural capability, inclusion and community engagement. Working in respectful partnerships with Indigenous communities, our aim is to constructively and practically make a difference in the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people we support and their communities.

Ally program – Pride at UnitingCare
Our Ally program aims to support all people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI). Under the program, a visible network of UnitingCare staff – Allies – work to ensure our environments are safe, welcoming and inclusive for sexually and gender diverse people, whether they be employees, volunteers or customers.
This program supports our commitment to ensuring people are free to be their whole selves, where they can work and live in safe and positive environments, free from harassment, discrimination or bullying.
