Data analysis is not yet complete and we still have a great volume of qualitative data to consider. We lack time or capacity to do this without support and are very under resourced. We are hoping that we may achieve support from government to complete the analysis with key research partners who can help us take this project forwards.
We welcome any donations, no matter how small, towards our survey costs and associated expenses, which are not yet covered.
