Tuesday 3 April 2018

The proposed LGBTIQ roundtable for Mount Alexander Shire Council takes a big step forward next week with a community forum for interested people to attend.

LGBTIQ people and those interested in LGBTIQ issues in our community are invited to come along to the forum and learn about the progress made to date and to nominate for a place on the roundtable.

“This forum is an opportunity for people to learn about how they can be more involved in supporting LGBTIQ people in our community to have equal access and support from Council and other organisations and services,” said Bronwen Machin, Mayor of Mount Alexander Shire Council.

“We’d love to see people who have a genuine interest in the rights and wellbeing of LGBTIQ people in our community to come along to the forum and get involved,” said Cr Machin.

Council is coordinating the roundtable in partnership with Castlemaine Community House. Next week’s forum will be facilitated by Castlemaine Community House Manager Martyn Shaddick and Sherene Clow.

Mr Shaddick said he hopes to see a diverse mix of people from the community involved in the roundtable.

“At the forum we’ll be talking about the terms of reference and what we’d like to achieve,” said Mr Shaddick.

“We’ll also outline the qualities we are looking for in people nominating for the roundtable and the expression of interest process that people will need to complete,” said Mr Shaddick.

“If you think this might be something you’re interested in please come along to the forum and see how you can have your say,” he said.
