Supporting LGBTQ+ people

An introduction and resource list for staff who want to develop good practice in service delivery for people who identify as LGBTQ+.

Service providers are not always aware of the sexuality or gender identity of the people they support, and might not understand their needs. As a result, LGBTQ+ individuals can struggle to get the right support, delaying their progression out of homelessness and increasing the likelihood of their needs becoming more complex.

This introduction is written for staff who are new to LGBTQ+ issues, and includes links to specialist agencies and resources to help you develop service provision tailored to individuals' needs.
