Siblings Australia 'Mapping Project' - Service Providers Survey
Siblings Australia is conducting a national ‘mapping project’ to help better understand where and how siblings of people with disability are being supported, where the gaps are and what people believe should be happening in the area of sibling support.

The mapping project offers multiple surveys, the first one (listed below) is for service providers only with aims to follow up with other ones for parent and siblings as well as one on one discussions with some people to develop a fuller picture.

If you are a service provider who is currently providing sibling support OR if your organisation has provided sibling support in the past, but does no longer OR if you have input into what should be happening in this area, please fill in the survey.

This survey is interested in the following types of sibling support:
1. Direct support that specifically targets and involves siblings
2. Indirect support that addresses sibling issues, but does not directly involve siblings
3. Other broader supports that are not specifically for siblings but may still benefit them.

NSW Women’s Strategy: The NSW Government invites you to Have Your Say
Take the Have Your Say NSW Women’s Strategy Survey.

Women NSW is developing the NSW Women’s Strategy, to improve outcomes for women and girls in every aspect of their lives.

Differences exist between women’s and men’s financial status, education and workforce participation, family and caring responsibilities, health and wellbeing, leadership and decision-making capacity, and experiences of and vulnerability to violence.

We need to understand why they still exist, and identify the change that needs to happen.
