LGBTIQ+ Health Australia and the National Ethnic Disability Alliance (NEDA) are developing training, peer support and mentoring activities for LGBTIQ+ people with disability. The training aims to improve your knowledge and skills in advocacy and storytelling.
The training has been developed by LGBTIQ+ people with disability through an advisory committee, co-design group and a recent survey.

About the ‘Our Voices, Our Lives, Our Way’ Project
This project is a joint initiative between LGBTIQ+ Health Australia and NEDA which is funded through Department of Social Services via the Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) Grant.
The project works within a framework of co-design, where LGBTIQ+ people with a lived experience of disability have been engaged in the design process to help determine the training content and delivery. The project design and delivery phases have included the voices of LGBTIQ+ First Nations and CALD people with disability. To help develop and implement this project, we’ve established an advisory committee that provides expert advice and guidance.
The project aims to build the individual and collective capacity of LGBTIQ+ PWD in a dynamic and innovative way to strengthen existing knowledge and skills through online training, mentoring and peer support activities. The online content will be rolled out mid-2022.
