Mosaic empowers lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people to better manage their own care, to support them to be active participants in decisions around aged care services they receive, and to improve overall health outcomes. Containing resources for LGBTI people, their partners, families of choice, aged care workers, and aged care service providers, the app is designed so that everyone can make informed choices and receive better quality, safe, inclusive care. Aged care service providers can profile their safe inclusive services and receive guidance on strengthening their commitment to an LGBTI inclusive service.

Mosaic received an Australian Good Design Award- read about that here

Rainbow of Difference developed award-winning resources for the aged care sector, to empower LGBTI people to better plan their ageing, to engage their families of choice, care teams and aged care organisations in that process. Rainbow of Difference is a partnership between Uniting and UTS and is funded by the Australian Government.

These free resources co-designed with LGBTI community members and organisations include an online interactive learning platform hosted by Altura Learning and a mobile app Mosaic, that provides resources for individuals, care staff and aged care organisations.
