LGBTIQ+ people wellbeing support

Most Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer plus (LGBTI+) people lead happy and healthy lives.

But many also experience poorer physical health, discrimination and difficulties accessing health care.

LGBTIQ+ people may also experience domestic and family violence, which has profound effects on a person’s wellbeing.

These are just a few reasons why accessing appropriate and safe support is essential.
