LGBTQIA+ Youth in Boroondara and Manningham

There is very limited localised data on the experience of LGBTQIA+ young people. Access Health and Community and headspace Hawthorn wanted to address this gap and co-designed a survey with a group of young people to try and understand their experience.

A total of 150 young people aged 12-25 that live, work or play in Boroondara and Manningham completed the two surveys which included questions around;

  • demographic data
  • perception of safety
  • awareness and experience of accessing services
  • access of LGBTQIA+ supports
  • favourite and least favourite things about being a young person.
