According to the report:
“In June of 2011 the Lesbian Gay Bi Trans Youth Line partnered with various community-based organizations and individuals in Simcoe County to implement their program, “Youth Line Loves Simcoe County” to build capacity and community for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth.
In addition to developing an event with LGBT youth and their allies, the Community Partners Committee of Simcoe County conducted a county-wide needs assessment report engaging LGBT youth, allies, service providers and educators. The needs assessment entitled, “Simcoe County LGBT Youth Needs Assessment: Making It Better Today”, was supported by the Lesbian Gay Bi Trans Youth Line and funded through the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
In total there were 157 LGBT youth, allies, service providers and educators who participated in online surveys, focus groups and participatory art methods from August 2011 to January 2012.”
