Currently LGBTIQ people engaging with the family violence system in Victoria experience countless barriers, discrimination, and lack of help. When asked about the family violence system, people with lived experience responded “What system? There is no system for us.”
The project aims to develop a shared understanding across the sector of barriers and service gaps for people in LGBTI communities. The first mapping of its kind in this topic area, this project seeks to inform policy direction and projects to support LGBTI people experiencing family violence.
This is a TACSI project commissioned by Family Safety Victoria and was made possible by the contributions and participation of people with lived experience and service provider stakeholders.
