Page Background

Despite positive changes in

recent years, lesbian, gay,

bisexual, trans, queer and

questioning (LGBTQ) people

still face discrimination across

a range of public services,

including social housing.

A recent study by HomeSAFE

has suggested that LGBTQ

people may receive very little

support from their landlords,

or a lack of understanding for

their needs.

Independent researchers, based

at the University of Surrey, are

conducting a new study to find

out more about the experiences

of LGBTQ residents living in

accommodation provided by

housing associations or

local councils.

The study, which will take place

between June and July, will

use focus groups, interviews

and an online survey to identify

the steps that housing

providers can take to address

the concerns of LGBTQ

residents. The findings, which

are being put into a report for

the housing associations

funding the study, will be made

publicly available later this year.

If you are an LGBTQ person

aged 18 or over, and would like

to know more about the

survey and how to take part,
