Latest News Embracing the rainbow for IDAHOBIT Day Cafs teamed up with Ballarat artists Andy Ferguson and Arky Fitzwater who used a wonderful array of chalk colours to create a display of vibrance, love and inclusion on the facade of Ludbrook House on Friday, 15 May. The actual IDAHOBIT Day is celebrated on May 17, the date the World Health Organisation declassified homosexuality as a mental disorder in 1990. CEO Wendy Sturgess said, "It is really important for clients, their families and friends to feel this is a safe place to come to seek services. We know people who have different sexual orientations and identifications often feel they would be judged and it wouldn't be a safe place. It is quite horrifying to think only 30 years ago homosexuality was considered a mental illness and in more than 70 countries today same sex acts are still illegal." Cafs recently became a Rainbow Tick accredited organisation, meaning staff have undergone training, reviewed policies and worked to create a non-discriminatory and non-judgmental organisational culture.
