LGBTIQA+ Community Advisory Group

About our LGBTIQA+ Community Advisory Group

With generous support from the Department of Human Services SA (DHS), SARAA has established an LGBTIQA+ Community Advisory Group to serve as a diverse but collective voice for the LGBTIQA+ community in public policy and decision-making.

This builds upon the 2019 LGBTIQA+ Roundtable held by Minister for Human Services, Michelle Lensink MLC.

SARAA’s LGBTIQA+ Community Advisory Group works to:

  • inform SARAA about issues of importance to the LGBTIQA+ community
  • assist SARAA in lobbying with Members of Parliament, peak bodies, and other relevant individuals and organisations to advance the health and wellbeing, social standing and rights of LGBTIQA+ people
  • be intersectional, giving a voice to the LGBTIQA+ people who have lived experience of a range of issues that impact our communities.

The LGBTIQA+ Community Advisory Group is made up of community leaders who are experts in the issues that impact our community most.
