Impact of austerity on LGBT people and communities - full report by NatCen

Impact of cuts on LGBT community and voluntary services

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How the spending cuts impact on LGBT people

PCS equalities has produced a report on the severity of central and local governments' spending cuts on organisations and support services which lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people use or may use. It brings together various recent reports, research and case studies.

It sets out to map the situation by introducing the current crisis that budget cuts are having on LGBT individuals and on public and voluntary services with a closer look at the impact that has had on some LGBT services across the UK.

The report then presents, in brief, some of the areas where the impact of the cuts and the ideological attacks are creating serious problems and detrimental life-changing consequences in such areas as families and the home, young LGBT people, transgender issues, justice, health, housing, immigration and education.
