Developing a National LGBTIQ Disability Strategy

The LGBTI Health Alliance, in partnership with the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), is conducting a nationwide consultation that will contribute to the development of an LGBTIQ Strategy. This Strategy will guide the work of the NDIA in the coming years and help to ensure that LGBTIQ people and communities can access and benefit from the National Disability Insurance Scheme [NDIS].

The consultation has two parts: A survey and a Lived Experience Forum.  The Lived Experience Forum will bring together LGBTIQ people living with disability from around Australia for an in-person meeting with the NDIA in Melbourne. This is an incredibly important opportunity for LGBTIQ people who live with disability to meet with the NDIA and share their wisdom gained from personal experience. Funding is available to support travel costs.

The survey will ensure that people from around Australia can contribute their wisdom to this consultation – wherever they are. If required it is also possible to complete the survey by telephone. The survey will take 15-30 minutes to complete and is anonymous.
