Survey results: LGBTIQ People and Care Relationships

As part of MIDSUMMA 2018, Carers Victoria invited LGBTIQ people in care relationships to answer a short survey about their experiences. Read a summary of survey results

Care relationships provide unpaid and informal care to someone with support needs. Carers may be friends, partners, biological family members or family of choice. 

Carers Victoria thanks everyone involved in the survey. Responses help us better understand the needs of LGBTIQ carers so we can advocate for improved services. 

We are always keen to hear about the experiences of Victorian LGBTIQ carers and carers who support an LGBTIQ person. You can contact us on 1800 242 636 or at www.carersvictoria.org.au. Stay in touch with us on Facebook and Twitter.


 

Are you an LGBTI carer?

Do you care for a partner, friend or family member with health or other support needs? This may be someone living with a disability, mental health challenge, chronic or terminal illness, addiction or an older person with care needs.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans/gender diverse and intersex (LGBTI) carers look after people with a variety of care needs. They often take on a caring role for friends and ‘family of choice' as well as biological family. 

Carers Victoria recognises that all individuals and caring situations are unique. Our aim is to provide services that are respectful and inclusive of all carers at every stage of life. We are committed to working alongside LGBTI communities to improve services and advocacy for LGBTI carers and carers of LGBTI people.
