Last chance to participate in the NSW LGBTIQ DV Survey 

We have collected almost 500 responses to the LGBTIQ domestic and family violence survey to date and it will remain live until the end of June. A huge thank you to all the people who have spent a considerable amount of time and thought into giving us their opinions and experiences. The information gathered will help DV support services across NSW to better understand the needs of LGBTIQ people and families. We hope to have the findings ready by the end of 2012. The draw for the $100 voucher will take place on June 30 and the winner will be informed by email.
