December 15, 2016

A press release:

We wanted to share with you a survey that the University of Bristol are running – with support from Regard, Stonewall and the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) –  which looks at the use of social care support by LGBTQI disabled people.

It is directed at people who are lesbian, bi, gay, trans, queer or intersex, disabled, living in England and who are organising some or all of their own social care.

Next-to-nothing is known about the use of social care support by LGBTQI disabled people. They will use the results of the survey to help raise awareness of the social care needs of LGBTQI disabled people and to highlight examples of things that do and don’t work very well.

The online survey takes 20 minutes to complete and is available at They are particularly welcoming of responses from members of the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities, and the over 55s.

If you have any questions or would like a paper version of this survey, please contact Dr Heather Ottaway (

Please do share this with your networks and with anyone you think may be interested in responding.

The survey is open until 31st December 2016.
