Rainbow Knowledge is working to help train health providers to work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning and asexual (LGBTQA+) young people.
The project aims to help staff working in Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth aged from 14 to 25 who identify as LGBTQA+.
Working with the Telethon Kids Institute, they have developed two reports into the needs of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander LGBTQA+ people when engaging with healthcare providers.
As part of the second phase of their project, they are recruiting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander LGBTQA+ young people to take part in co-design workshops to develop an inclusivity training package for Aboriginal Community controlled organisations.
