In 2013, MGRM set up the first support service for LGBTIQ individuals, their family and friends. The service is committed to enhance the quality of life of LGBTIQ individuals, their family and friends through the provision of information, consultation and psycho-social welfare services.
The Rainbow Support Service aims to: provide an intake social work service whereby users can obtain information and support on LGBTIQ issues; provide one-to-one social work session and interventions, as well as group support sessions; promote the development of self-help within the LGBTIQ community, provide one-to-one therapeutic sessions to LGBTIQ individuals, provide training and consultation sessions to professionals on LGBTIQ affirmative practice and other LGBTIQ issues; assist in the promotion of positive public awareness and provide legal advice where required as well as training on LGBTIQ issues and the law.
