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:
- 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;
- They’ve established an online closed LGBTIQ People With Disabilities Forum which is now operating with 100+ members;
- 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.
