The “Our Lives” survey is open for all women and non-binary people aged 16 years and over who live in the ACT and surrounding region. The survey looks at their lived experiences by asking questions primarily relating to employment, housing, financial security, safety, and future aspirations.

The ‘Our Lives’ survey data has become an integral element of YWCA Canberra’s advocacy agenda and used to inform the organisation’s contribution to the development of public policy on housing stress, safety, and economic security.

The 2023 ‘Our Lives’ survey takes just under 10 minutes and is open until September with a final report released in November.
