Policy & Research

Such as community organisations, government organisations, community groups and private sector organisations or companies, have been working with us on research for over 40 years. Many organisations request information from us to help improve their services and inclusivity in their organisation, improving access and safety for out LGBTIQ+ Sistergirl and Brotherboy communities. We have best practice tips for organisations improving access and safety, and ways to ensure questions are worded in ways that speak to our communities safely and effectively. Some examples of this could be co-designing a survey with QC or sharing surveys between organisations, their social media channels, email networks and partnership networks.

We thank all our LGBTIQ+ Sistergirl and Brotherboy communities and people, visible and not, for your time, energy, contributions and stories. They make this work possible, and we feel honoured to carry their lived experiences through research and policy.  

 

If you would like to partner with us in conducting a survey or co-designing, please get in touch with us.​​​

QC has been working closely with our LGBTIQ+ Sistergirl and Brotherboy communities, people, researchers, medical professionals and scientists for over 40 years. 

​ 

We work with our communities ensure the safety, cultural well-being and transparency of content we share with our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer, Sistergirl and Brotherboy communities and people by asking questions in a way that is best practice. An example is asking about people's diverse bodies, genders and relationships. Ask us for our best practice knowledge. 

​ 

As an organisation that walks alongside our communities in finding the best healthcare and wellbeing services and spaces, we want to hear from you on a range of issues and matters affecting your lives. 

  

We aim to create space where your voice can be heard, whether that's through a community conversation, forum, online survey, one on one chat over the phone, town hall style meeting or kitchen table chat. We want to ensure the best space is provided for you to safely and effectively tell your story. 

​ 

Sharing your lived experience and thoughts with can be hard and takes up energy and time. We recognise that people's stories and the time it takes to tell them are precious and valuable. Talking to us about ways to ensure self-care and well-being is important, as is seeing the outcomes of that storytelling and survey taking, only if it's minutes or hours spent putting time into giving feedback and storytelling. It is because of this that we aim to conduct and point to research that will benefit our communities and people. 

​ 

When contacting us to share research opportunities with our communities, partnership organisations and people, we have outlined some helpful information below.
