NatCen research on the implications of austerity for LGBT people and services

Implications of austerity for LGBT people and services (PDF) was published by NatCen in December 2013.

Findings:

The effects were varied but there was a feeling that progress on challenging discrimination was being reversed and that homophobia and transphobia were on the rise again.

People expressed a view that LGBT needs and concerns were seen by policy makers and service providers a ‘nice thing to do’ that could be dropped in harder times.
