      This document outlines guidance on inclusive practice for agencies in Australian homelessness and housing sectors working with clients who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and queer or questioning (LGBTIQ+). This has been prepared in response to requests from these sectors, as well as clear research and practice evidence that LGBTIQ+ people are at higher risk of homelessness and have specific needs to address. This guide is intended to be applicable to housing and homelessness services across Australia; and to provide a practical set of principles for staff at all levels to implement systems and cultural change, as well as to serve as a source of useful information for people in the LGBTIQ+ community who are or might be accessing these services.
