SARAA, 1 April 2019
The South Australian Rainbow Advocacy Alliance (SARAA) has analysed the results of their community survey and compiled them into a summary.
Some key findings:
- Only 60% of respondents felt comfortable disclosing their gender and/or their
sexual orientation when accessing services.
- When accessing services, 37.7% of respondents felt that they didn’t receive
sufficient and meaningful information to inform decision making.
- 64% felt that the current level of LGBTIQ+ specific services did not
adequately meet their needs.
- This includes a lack of services and supports to rural and remote
communities, a lack of services and supports for older LGBTIQ+ people
and cuts to vital services for LGBTIQ+ people.
- More support for trans people to access necessary medical services.
