The strength and resiliency of our families rely on the strength and resiliency of our community. Rainbow Families empowers LGBTQI families by raising awareness, addressing discrimination and promoting acceptance of family diversity for lesbian mothers, gay dads and all Rainbow Families.

Rainbow families may experience discrimination because of laws or prejudice, need help accessing basic services, or struggle to find acceptance in schools, workplaces, with neighbours or in the community as a whole.

Fighting for equality and creating positive, safe spaces for our families is critical to supporting strength and resiliency.

To help us create resilient families, Rainbow Families has released a guide to raising resilient families, with tips on being more resilient parents and carers.
