At Cafs, we actively celebrate diversity and inclusion. We believe that the differences our people and service users bring to our organisation add to our strength.

We are committed to providing an inclusive environment, supportive of diversity. And we encourage full participation of all employees, carers and volunteers, alongside engagement with all service users and community members.

A message from our CEO, Wendy Sturgess

"Cafs is proud to be an inclusive and equal opportunity organisation. We embrace it, value it, celebrate it and support it for the benefit of our employees, our volunteers, our service users, and our community. We welcome applications from a range of people including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, People with disabilities, LGBTIQ+ people and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds."

Cafs workplace commitment

Cafs values uniqueness and is a culturally safe environment. Uniqueness is our strength and how we build great teams. We welcome and universally accept everyone as diversity drives innovation. We strive to create workplaces that reflect the communities we serve and where people feel empowered to bring their full, authentic selves to work.

We foster creating a culture of equality for all and ensure we are a powerful platform and leader in the community for social change.

Inclusive employer recognition

Our commitment to building an inclusive workplace has resulted in Cafs being officially recognised as an Inclusive Employer 2019-2020 by the Diversity Council of Australia.

The Inclusion Index is based on a national survey of over 3,000 Australian workers and seeks to determine how inclusive is the Australian workforce for a diversity of employees, and what impact inclusion has on performance and wellbeing.
