Details

Collective Action partnered with Meridian to lead the first national study into the role of peer-led services in meeting the health needs of LGBTIQA+ people across Australia. Our research echoes what LGBTIQA+ peer-led organisations hear directly from their clients and communities: peer-led services reduce barriers to healthcare and support, connect communities, and provide safe and affirming spaces where LGBTIQA+ people feel understood and accepted. We hope these findings will contribute to a growing evidence base for the value of peer-led services, and their essential role in the Australia health care system.
