Our Inclusion Statement

At WHWS and our sister organisations, Western Australian Centre for Perinatal Mental Health and Parenting Support, Elevate Wellbeing and Hidden World of You we firmly believe in fostering an environment of inclusivity, where every individual is valued, respected, and empowered. We are dedicated to providing equity of service for everyone, regardless of age, gender, nationality, sexuality, disability or any other characteristic that makes each person unique.

Our commitment to inclusivity goes beyond mere words. We seek to create a diverse community that thrives on the varied perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds of its members. We recognise that diversity fuels innovation and enables us to achieve greater heights together.

Inclusion and Diversity

We welcome, celebrate and embrace:

  • individuals of all ages, embracing the wisdom and fresh perspectives that come from different life stages.

  • the rich tapestry of genders, allowing individuals to express themselves authentically and without judgment.

  • people from all nationalities, recognising that cultural diversity enriches our organisation and promotes global understanding.

  • individuals of all sexual orientations and gender identities, creating a safe and supportive space for everyone to be their true selves.

  • individuals with disabilities, ensuring accessibility and aim to promote full participation and equity of access. (That’s 3 embraces – what is another adjective that says welcome?)

Diversity is not merely tolerated but celebrated. We understand that it is through the integration of different perspectives and ideas that we can drive innovation, creativity, and success. We actively seek out and embrace the contributions of people from all walks of life, ensuring that our organisation is representative of the broader community we serve.

Inclusion is not just an ideal; it is at the core of our values. We strive to ensure that everyone feels heard, valued, and empowered to contribute their unique talents and ideas. Discrimination and prejudice have no place within our organisation, and we actively work to challenge and dismantle any barriers that may exist.

Our commitment to inclusivity extends beyond our internal operations. We strive to create inclusive programs, services, and initiatives that cater to the needs and interests of all individuals, regardless of their background. By fostering an environment of understanding, empathy, and support, we aim to create a safe and empowering space for everyone who interacts with our service, whether that be as a staff member, client, referrer or stakeholder.

By fostering an inclusive environment, we aim to create a sense of belonging where each person can thrive and reach their full potential. We are committed to ongoing learning and improvement, regularly evaluating our policies, practices, and programs to ensure they align with our commitment to inclusion.

Together, we can build a community that celebrates diversity, promotes equity, and embraces the richness of each individual. At WHWS/WACPPS/Elevate Wellbeing/Hidden World of You, all are welcome, and we are proud to stand united in our commitment to inclusivity.
