Through our Partnership with Gender and Disaster Australia (GADAUS).
You are invited to take part in a study about Experiences of men, women and LGBTIQA+ people in Australian disasters.

If you are over 18 years old and are a survivor of recent Australian disasters, you are invited to take part in this important research.
The aim is to explore the ways disasters affect us
to improve experiences of disasters and their aftermath for future disaster survivors.
It will involve an interview lasting about an hour with one or two interviewers at a time and place to suit you, by zoom or in person (where feasible).
We will audio record the interview, transcribe it, and you can review it before we use it along with other people’s accounts.

Please see link in comments for contact information, eligibility criteria and details on the research.
