RISE stands for ‘Recent Diagnosis and the Impact of Support on Experiences of HIV’. RISE is exploring people’s experiences of being diagnosed with HIV and the changes in their lives following their diagnosis.
What's involved? Simply complete an online survey twice a year. The survey includes detailed questions about your experience of being diagnosed with HIV, and your life since then. In the first survey we will also ask you some questions about your life in the period just before you were diagnosed. The survey will take about 35–45 minutes to complete. (The follow-up surveys will be shorter.)
As 2018 draws to an end and the festive season here upon us, it is a great time to share the love and donate to the Trevor Daley Fund (TDF).
TDF supports people living with HIV. This year we have assisted new and existing clients to support their journey to live well with HIV. We have provided assistance with basic living needs such as accommodation, medical expenses and food. And with growing pressure for assistance, we need your help.
As organisations, leaders and allies of diverse lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) communities, we stand united in our call on all Australian governments to ensure that every person can go to school, work or access services free from discrimination.
Australians voted for fairness and equality last year, not to entrench discrimination against LGBTI people and their families.
Rainbow Families events are an opportunity for families with LGBTIQ identifying parents and/ or children to come together as families to connect and celebrate their family’s uniqueness in a safe, supportive, and non-judgemental environment. Events provide a great opportunity for families to form new friendships, or catch up for fun activities with existing friends. Each event reflects the Council's values of Respect, Inclusiveness, Partnership and Empowerment, and have lasting positive impacts on our overall community.
