Audre project started in Groningen (October 2017) to understand the experiences of LGBTQIA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender,  Queer, Intersex and Asexual) youth and young adults with their time in out-of-home care. In addition, Audre project focuses on the perceptions of carers (such as group care workers and foster carers) who are responsible for the wellbeing of young people while in care. The final goal of Audre is to gain further insight on how to create a safe and supportive child protection and welfare context, in which youth feel accepted and are equipped to express their (gender) identity.

Audre project addresses the following research questions:

  1. How do or did LGBTQIA youth and young adults experience their out-of-home placement during their childhood?
  2. What are carers’ stereotypes, attitudes, norms and values regarding LGBTQIA?

Who is behind Audre?

The research team is made up of the following members:

Audre is funded by FWOS (Fonds Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek Seksualiteit).
