Fresh Start: Inclusion and Diversity Statement
Fresh Start warmly welcomes and promotes the inclusion of all people, recognising the inherent dignity and uniqueness of every person. We value the diversity that this uniqueness brings to our community and believe that it is part of what makes our world a more beautiful place. We are committed to treating others with respect, kindness and inclusivity to ensure that everyone at Fresh Start feels welcome and supported.
We employ a diverse and multicultural staff who come from a variety of different backgrounds, but we are united in the belief that all people are equally deserving of respect and inclusion. Our staff reflects the broad diversity of the Australian community and is made up of people who differ in race, gender, culture, social class, age, beliefs, sexual identity and ability and we value the unique perspectives and skills that these differences bring to our workplace. All staff at Fresh Start complete diversity and inclusivity awareness training to ensure we are nurturing a positive and collaborative mindset in our team. This allows us to better care for our clients and ensure we are meeting the needs of the community we serve.
Fresh Start’s core values are Innovation, Integrity, Compassion and Continuous Care. Each of these values reflects our foundational desire to bring hope for recovery from addiction to our clients and their families – something that is best achieved in supportive, safe and inclusive community.
Fresh Start warmly welcomes and promotes the inclusion of all people, recognising the inherent dignity and uniqueness of every person and promoting the safety and wellbeing of everyone who uses our services.
