How the COVID-19 resources were developed
Community voices, needs and concerns have been at the heart of this project, and the project has been run by multicultural LGBTIQ+ people for multicultural LGBTIQ+ people.
Between August and October 2021, we engaged with multicultural LGBTIQ+ communities to develop resources that would be appropriate and would address community needs and concerns regarding COVID-19. This included:
- consulting with more than 20 community organisations and groups
- running a survey where 51 community members told us about their communities’ concerns
- running a focus group with community members to test our draft resources for relevance and usefulness.
We developed our information sessions and factsheets to address what we heard from community, together with information from Victoria’s Department of Health and Australia’s Department of Health.
