Thank you to all who participated and provided feedback.

We want Darebin to be a safe and inclusive place for everyone.

This is why we are developing a draft LGBTIQA+* Action Plan to deliver on Council’s commitment to create a safer and more welcoming Darebin for LGBTIQA+ community members.

We want to hear about your experiences.

Share your ideas on what we can do to support the inclusion, rights and wellbeing of Darebin's LGBTIQA+ communities.

Your ideas and experiences will help inform the development of the Action Plan.

Include your feedback, including examples, in the survey and post your comments in the Vision Tool. Talk to us in-person in a safe and welcoming environment at our stalls at designated major LGBTIQA+ events. All details for these events are listed in the 'Speak to us face-to-face' section on this page.
