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
