Submitted by Sunil Patel on Monday, 24 February 2014 - 5:24am.

This report is the result of a small study undertaken to explore services and referral pathways, if any, are currently available for refugee and newly arrived young people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or trans* or those who may be questioning their sexual feelings and/or gender identity.

The report aims to:

  • Document the support needs of LGBT young people from refugee and newly arrived backgrounds
  • Document the current availability of relevant resources and services and identify gaps; and
  • Make recommendations about further activities and projects that could be undertaken to improve the outcomes for these young people
