When planning inclusive community engagement, it is important to understand client groups and the challenges they potentially face. This helps to ensure programs and services are appropriate and address the diverse needs of clients.
- Don’t make assumptions about someone’s gender identity or sexuality.
- Make sure to create safe environments where LGBTIQA+ people feel safe to participate.
- Respect the privacy of any information that people share with you. For example, they might not have ‘come out’ (openly disclosed their sexuality or gender identity) with their family or carers.
