In this edition, we invite you to participate in our feedback survey, which closes on Sunday. See what is happening in the lived experience space through attending the launch of the ‘No More Missing Middle’ report, and the announcement regarding funding for the the ALIVE Academy of Lived Experience and Co-Design Living Labs. You can attend the National NDIS and Psychosocial Disability Quality and Safety Forum, and read about the ongoing response to the Independent Assessment announcement. We address and share resources regarding the issues of sexual assault and trauma in the media. Meridian invites input to their specialised mental health services for the LGBTIQA+ community, and also provides a factsheet on data collection standards for the ABS.
