Research on the implications of public spending cuts on LGBT people

The impacts of the Government’s spending cuts are wide ranging. However more information is needed to understand the implications for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.

NatCen Social Research, an independent social research organisation, has been commissioned by UNISON to explore whether and how public spending cuts of recent years have affected LGBT people. We are interested in hearing from LGBT people who have used publicly funded services or people who have provided services to LGBT people in the last two years.

We are inviting you to contribute your views on the implications of austerity for LGBT people. Taking part is completely confidential and no individual or organisation will be identified.
