To ask the Minister for Women and Equalities, with reference to the 2018 LGBT+ Action Plan, whether the research carried out by her Department and the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government on LGBT+ homelessness, also includes research on (a) LGBT+ youth homelessness and (b) the experiences of LGBT+ youth who are hidden homeless.
The Government recognises that homelessness amongst LGBT people is an important issue and is determined to understand it better.
The research on LGBT homelessness aims to improve understanding of the needs of people who are homeless and LGBT. It also looks at how housing and support services are being delivered to LGBT people and how they can be improved to better meet their needs. The research takes into account the experiences of LGBT people of a range of ages and with experiences of different forms of homelessness.
