Lotus Place Focus Group Reports
The review began in April, 2018 with four focus groups with Lotus Place Participants; two in Brisbane and one each in Rockhampton and Townsville. People who could not attend the groups were invited to send written submissions (four were received) or to be interviewed by telephone by either the consultant or Micah Projects staff member (seven telephone interviews were conducted). A meeting was also held with the Historical Abuse Network, which focused on the future of advocacy through Lotus Place. Staff of Lotus Place were given a verbal report of the themes arising from the above and met for a day and a half to discuss future directions of Lotus Place.
Ann Porcino is the consultant working with Micah Projects on this project.
