Part of the Picture

The Lesbian & Gay Foundation is undertaking a national piece of research that may be of interest to you or your group.

‘Part of the Picture’ is a 5 year collaboration between The Lesbian & Gay Foundation and the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) and is being funded by the Big Lottery Fund. It is the largest survey of LGB substance use ever undertaken.

 Aims of this project

· To establish a national (England) database of LGB people’s drug and alcohol use

· To inform local and national policy and practice in addressing drug and alcohol use of LGB people

· To improve knowledge and understanding of the needs of LGB drug and alcohol users among drug and alcohol agencies

The Lesbian & Gay Foundation is collecting data nd looking to widen its network of respondents to ensure that diversity within the LGB population is represented and their results paint a truly national picture.   They would greatly appreciate any help you can offer in promoting this survey on your social media or professional networks. The survey is completely confidential and anonymous and can be accessed here.
