YOUNG PEOPLE ARE THE EXPERTS IN THEIR OWN LIVES
Your experiences, opinions, ideas, questions and concerns are unique.
Young people have a right to be involved in decisions that affect them.
When decision makers make decisions that affect young people without talking to young people, they can end up making assumptions and bad decisions.
That’s why YACSA exists.
AND WE NEED YOUR EXPERTISE!
We’re in the middle of a pretty massive project.
The Department of Human Services (Office for Youth) has asked us to consult with LGBTIQ+ young people in SA to:
Develop a better understanding of your needs, experiences and ideas and opinions.
Identify what services or supports are currently working well.
Determine how government and other organisations can continue to improve supports or opportunities going forward.
We’ve talked to LGBTIQ+ social/support groups all over the state, hearing from people about their needs, experiences, ideas and opinions.
We’ve been through Adelaide, and out to Murray Bridge, Mt Barker, Onkaparinga, Whyalla and Mt Gambier.
Here’s some of what young people have told us so far (scroll through).
And we want to make sure you have a chance to be included as well!
So take this survey, and help us drive change for lgbtiq+ young people in sa
All you need to do is take this survey for us.
The information you provide will inform a report to be released by the Department of Human Services in early 2019,
Your responses, data and identity will be anonymous, private and protected.
(The survey questions have been informed by young people)
