  • This portal is for individuals and organisations to upload a submission in response to the proposed actions in the Draft Strategy. Feedback in various forms is welcome, such as a poem or artwork.  

    For each section of the Draft Strategy, we invite consideration to the following questions: 

    1. Feasibility: Are the actions achievable in the recommended timeframe and allocated to the correct responsible party/parties? Is there a readiness for change? 
    2. Enablers: What might support the actions and/or assist the work needed to implement the change? 
    3. Barriers: What might slow down or prevent the gaining of support for the actions, or their implementation? 
    4. Effectiveness: Will the actions lead to the changes we want to see? Are there any potential unintended consequences? 
    5. Anything missing: Are there any critical issues or actions to address stigma and discrimination that are not referenced or sufficiently prioritised in the Draft Strategy? 


    Before uploading your submission, we ask that you complete some brief questions about you/your organisation.  

    The upload process will also ask what sections of the Draft Strategy are referred to in your submission.

    These questions are optional.
