I hope to see more resources in the future

I think that this provided a lot of really good insight on – um, what more can be done for trans and non-binary people, because before I heard some of the ideas from Participant 1 and 3 um, I wasn’t really sure what to say and [...] I was just thinking y’know like, am I overstepping a little bit?

But I think that this provided a lot of really good insight and um, yeah, I just kind of hope to see more resources in the future for trans and non-binary people who’ve experienced sexual violence.

Recommendations

  • Engage with student leaders from diverse cultural backgrounds and genders when revising policy content and associated services. Ensure the concerns raised by these students are foregrounded in policy development and application.
