National Sector Consultation tomorrow!
MYAN is hosting an online sector consultation to identify the work done so far to encourage vaccine uptake. The consultation will focus on how the sector and their members have worked towards stopping the spread of COVID-19 encouraging vaccine uptake within multicultural communities across Australia. We are particularly keen to hear about the different strategies and approached that have been used successfully.
Findings from this consultation will be shared with the Department of Health who will use this information to assist in informing their upcoming communication strategies regarding the COVID-19 vaccine.

Participate in the National Survey "Counting us in" on the settlement experiences of young LGBTQI+ aslum seekers & refugees
MYAN has launched a national survey on the settlement experiences of LGBTQI+ young adults from refugee & asylum seeker backgrounds living in Australia.
This survey is aimed to understand what particular challenges are faced by this group when accessing settlement support services. The results will contribute to an improved national evidence base and ensure their unique voices are heard within broader conversations about settlement.
Do you identify as LGBTQI+ people aged 18-30 who arrived in Australia as a person seeking asylum or as a refugee? We invite you to participate in this survey, or to share with interested individuals and organisations.
