  1. Options-based support that facilitates decision making and upholds rights to agency and autonomy
  2. Services that are transparent and manage LGBTQ+ young people’s expectations about what will happen when they enter and progress through a service
  3. Services with policies and procedures that mean LGBTQ+ young people are prioritised and included in decision-making about their care
