Trans and Gender Diverse Community Consultations

ACON is developing a Trans and Gender Diverse (TGD) Community Health Strategy and we want to hear from you!

We are facilitating a number of meetings to bring TGD communities, friends, families, health services and allies together to discuss and identify the key priorities for improving the health and wellbeing of TGD communities. Discussions from these meetings will inform the development of ACON’s first Trans and Gender Diverse Community Health Strategy.

The final strategy will include how ACON will strengthen the inclusion of TGD people within our programs and services, as well as actions required across the NSW health, community and legal systems of which ACON will work with others to advocate for.

We are particularly interested in making sure we hear from the full diversity of our communities including from Sistergirls, Brotherboys and people from culturally and linguistically diverse communities.

You are invited to please register and attend an upcoming TGD Community Health Strategy Consultation Meeting.
