The City of Perth is seeking feedback on the draft LGBTQIA+ Plan



What the community have told us - Stakeholder Engagement Outcomes

Thank you to everyone who provided input and feedback into the preparation of the City's first LGBTQIA+ Plan. Your contribution has been invaluable and has guided the City in developing the plan for the community now and into the future.

More than 500 consultations occurred between March and April to better understand the experiences of the LGBTQIA+ community in Perth, as well as the Council's role as a local government in improving the wellbeing of the community. We have heard hundreds of voices and many stories.

The Stakeholder Engagement Outcomes Report outlines what we’ve learnt from the community and demonstrates that there are opportunities to improve the safety, visibility, social inclusion, health and wellbeing of the LGBTQIA+ community in the city. This document is available on the right hand side of this page.

How we have responded - draft LGBTQIA+ Plan

In response to the community feedback, the City of Perth has developed a three-year plan, dedicated to improving the experience of LGBTQIA+ people in the city. The plan is a clearly articulated set of actions that focuses on the City of Perth’s role as a service provider, partner and facilitator in increasing the visibility, social inclusion and health and wellbeing of the LGBTQIA+ community. As a capital city, the City will also play an advocacy role for issues that are important to the community.

The draft plan was endorsed by Council at the 27 July 2021 Council Meeting. This document is available on the right hand side of this page.
