LGBTIQ domestic/family violence survey closed

Most Of Our Communities' Relationships Are Based On Love And Respect. Some are based on Abuse And Control

The online survey was developed to gain a better picture of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex or queer (LGBTIQ) experiences of, and attitudes towards, intimate partner abuse.

It will give us a better understanding of how we can improve support services for the LGBTIQ community, and how we can educate mainstream services to respond more appropriately to LGBTIQ people experiencing abuse.

Thanks so much to everyone who participated in our survey, generously sharing experiences and opinions on LGBTIQ domestic and family violence in NSW.

We received 570 fully completed surveys and have gathered what we believe to be the largest body of data on LGBTIQ domestic and family violence in Australia.

The next step is the analysis of results. We are aiming to release the findings in early 2013.

If you have any questions about the survey and its findings,
