Members of the LGBTIQ+ Health and Wellbeing Research Network may provide advice on available research for members of LGBTIQ+ Health Australia (LHA) and allies in other organisations that need research to support program and policy development for LGBTIQ+ health and wellbeing.
This is a volunteer service to improve access to available research to help in evidence-based policy development and strengthen work to improve LGBTIQ+ health and wellbeing.
- Do you need information to support a funding application?
- Are you facing growing demand and need help to understand what’s happening and respond?
- Would you like to strengthen an article you are writing to promote public awareness?
- Could research evidence make the difference for your submission on a public consultation?
This service will assist you to find existing data and research for a specific project, programme or policy issue. The volunteer researchers are not able to do new research or analysis. They might not be able to respond to all requests due to time constraints.
This Research Information Service is not for:
- Researchers with access to information services in a university or other educational setting.
- School, university or post-graduate students seeking assistance for their studies.
- Federal and state Government or private sector organisations that have alternative resources for research.
- People seeking new research or new analysis of existing data.
- Requests that have a very broad scope and require significant work to collate and respond.
All applications will be received and assessed by LGBTIQ+ Health Australia (LHA).
✔ If your request meets the aims of the service, LHA will provide the request to participating researchers. We’ll send you an email to let you know. Researchers with information will contact you directly.
✘ If your request is outside the scope of this service, LHA will let you know within two weeks.
Before making a request, please check if the information you are after is available in one of Australia’s major LGBTIQ+ research sources.
Please allow time for LHA and the research volunteers to consider your request. If no one can help with existing research information, you might not get a further response. We endeavour to let you know if this may occur.
