The 2022 LGBT+ Commission, which will publish a ground-breaking assessment of the state of the nation for the UK’s LGBT+ community, with actionable recommendations for the Government Equalities Office, is now open for case study submissions.
Case study submissions for the 2022 LGBT+ Commission are now open. Taking a grassroots-up approach, the Commission now welcomes members of local/regional government as well as civil society groups and businesses to submit their examples of best practice addressing LGBT+ inequalities. These case studies will form the basis of scalable policy recommendations that will be taken to the Government Equalities Office and other bodies in June 2022, ahead of the UK’s ‘Safe to Be Me’ conference.
Case Study Forms:
Respondents will be able to submit case studies across the four key themes, based around key areas of concern for the LGBT+ community:
- Health, Mental Health, Sexual Health, and Fertility
- Homelessness and Housing
- Hate Crime and Domestic Violence
- Employment, Employability, and Education
The inequalities faced by LGBT+ people in these areas are well-established and widely acknowledged to require greater focus. However, while the problems are known, the solutions are less so. As such, the Commission will take a solutions-focused approach, taking effective and scalable services that have been developed and implemented at the local level to the Government Equalities Office as examples of provisions that could be rolled-out more widely.
It is here that your case studies will be critically important. If you are involved in LGBT+ service provision at local/regional government level, work for a civil society group concerned with providing support to LGBT+ people, or for a business with strong LGBT+ inclusive policies, please submit a case study and forward on the survey to others in your network. Your submissions will allow the commission to take concrete and workable solutions to the Government to help drive their LGBT+ agenda following the scrapping of the LGBT action plan.
