The Department of Human Services (Office for Youth) and the Youth Affairs Council of SA (YACSA) are teaming up to drive positive change for LGBTIQ+ young people (that’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer and other young people with diverse gender identities and sexualities).
To begin these conversations we’re conducting two surveys, the responses to which will inform a report to be published early 2019, about how government and the community sector can best support LGBTIQ+ young people now and into the future.
Survey for LGBTIQ+ young people
YACSA have designed a short survey to hear from LGBTIQ+ young people. It aims to develop a better understanding of LGBTIQ+ young people’s needs, experiences, ideas and opinions, and determine how government and other organisations can improve support and opportunities for this group in the future.
Survey for community sector workers and volunteers
The Office for Youth have designed a short survey to hear from people who work or volunteer to support young people across South Australia. It aims to find out more about what works well in terms of supporting young LGBTIQ+ people, and what else might be needed. It links in to other LGBTIQ+ inclusion work undertaken by the Department of Human Services (DHS), which you can read more about here.
Both surveys are open until 2 January 2019, and can be accessed here.
