Elder Voices survey.

Elder voices online survey

Elder Voices is an online survey about life for Takatapui and Rainbow Elders, developed by Hohou Te Rongo Kahukura and Rainbow Hub Waikato. The findings from this survey will be used to create a report to inform plans and services for Takatāpui and Rainbow Elders.
The survey is open to everyone over 55 who knows they are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, non-binary, intersex or Takatāpui. People do not need to be “out” to anyone else to take part. The survey will be open until 20 December 2022. You can go to the survey via this link: bit.ly/3qdLK9A.

You can find out more about Hohou Te Rongo Kahukura and Rainbow Hub Waikato by visiting their websites: kahukura.co.nz and rainbowhubwaikato.org.nz.
