Rainbow Families needs your help!


Rainbow Families is a 100% volunteer organisation, providing a network of support to children and families within the NSW LGBTIQ community. Our goal is to connect, support and empower LGBTIQ parents and their families.

In the past 12 months, we have achieved so much.

Our Advocacy team has:

  • Organised for Rainbow Families to visit Canberra to talk to politicians about the proposed plebiscite
  • Advocated for the review of the NSW Blue Book to make it more inclusive for LGBTIQ families
  • Written a submission for the surrogacy inquiry
  • Met with NSW parliamentarians to discuss the inequality LGBTIQ families face everyday
  • Held an event for International Family Equality Day to raise awareness of the inequality experienced by our families
  • Provided the Gayby Baby team with support for the School Action Toolkit
  • Our Education team has:
  • Facilitated two PPP parenting courses
  • Put together the Making Rainbow Babies Seminar
     

We have put on some wonderful events

  • Weekly Playgroups
  • Halloween disco
  • Fair Day
  • Family Fun Day
  • ‘Together We Sparkle’ Mardi Gras Float
  • End of year party (we will see you there)


We have become incorporated

This may sound boring but it is very important. Being incorporated means we have a constitution we have to follow, ensuring good governance and a committee of decision makers. Expect to see emails soon about how you can join as a financial member. The cost will only be $2 per year per person with a $2 joining fee. Incorporation also allows us to apply for grants to do more for the community.

We have received grants

  • City of Sydney - will be used for our Mardi Gras season
  • Inner West Council - for the amazing disco
  • Northcott - for our marquees
  • ACON - for the PPP parenting course in Western Sydney


We are a committee of 11 members and we cannot do it alone. We have a massive year ahead planned and need your help to make it happen. Really, we can’t do it without your help. By getting involved, we can continue to deliver advocacy, education and events for LGBTIQ parents and their children.

There are three ways you can get involved:

If you would like to be involved in the committee, or a sub committee please email Ashley and Vanessa at cochair@rainbowfamilies.com.au
 
If you would like to volunteer at a one off event please email Bern at volunteers@rainbowfamilies.com.au
