Congratulations to Jake Lewis and the team at VALID


They’ve just reached the end of the Pride Foundation initiated Victorian Government grant to scope the needs for a self-advocacy group for LGBTIQA+ people living with disabilities.

Jake and the team have achieved some incredible things throug this project:

  1. They’ve developed a Needs Assessment Questionnaire, promoted it and received 160+ returns. We’ll be sharing the results of this in 2-3 months;
  2. They’ve established an online closed LGBTIQ People With Disabilities Forum which is now operating with 100+ members;
  3. And they’ve held a concluding event to form the  LGBTIQA+ Disability Collective’ (LGBTIQA+ DISCO).

Pride Foundation has also assisted the group in applying for funding to continue this self-help collective.
