Housing with Pride
Research we have conducted has shown that despite over a decade of equality laws, together with some examples of good practice, many lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer (LGBTQ+) people living in social housing provided by a local authority or housing association continue to experience discrimination in their everyday lives, especially in relation to their housing. This can lead to a range of compensatory behaviours and feelings of dissatisfaction and insecurity. The main aim of the Housing with Pride project was to work collaboratively with social housing providers, LGBT+ organisations and most importantly LGBTQ+ social housing residents to build on our research and effect change in the social housing sector. This report shows how, using a range of knowledge exchange methods, different stakeholders have been empowered to create policies and practices that will ultimately improve the lives of LGBTQ+ social housing residents.
The Housing with Pride project report documents the way that knowledge exchange and impact were achieved, as well as the key learning points that emerged from the project.
