This is the First Annual Report on the implementation of the actions in the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Intersex (LGBTI+) National Youth Strategy 2018–2020. The three year Strategy was published on 29 June 2018 and represents a world first. It is a key commitment for the Department of Children and Youth Affairs (DCYA) as part of the 2016 Programme for Partnership Government and is contributing towards the Government’s broader commitment to continue to strive for the full inclusion of LGBTI+ people in Irish society. It is strongly action oriented with the explicit mission to ensure all LGBTI+ young people are visible, valued and included.
The Strategy sets out three overarching strategic goals that will support the achievement of the LGBTI+ National Youth Strategy mission and vision to 2020 (hereafter referred to as ‘the Strategy’). The goals are aligned to the Better Outcomes Brighter Futures five national outcomes and cascade down into 15 objectives and 59 actions.
Each action has been assigned to an action lead which is a Government Department or State Agency (or in one case Non-Governmental Organisations) and partners to support ownership and effective implementation of each action, as well as identification of a year for commencement of actions within the three-year timeline of the Strategy.
