Survey pic 2

In 2015, we conducted a survey of the local LGBT+ community. The survey sought to find out more about lives and concerns of local LGBT+ people so we could use the research to help us:


Understand the LGBT+ community’s needs and priorities


Effectively respond to these


Improve our services and their accessibility


The vast majority of people felt there is still a need for an LGBT community.


The research found that three quarters of people surveyed felt that Nottingham and Nottinghamshire was a good place for LGBT+ people to live.


There was a very good response to the survey and it can be read in full by clicking HERE
