Research Documents by Other Organisations

Stonewall School Report (2017)

The School Report 2017 from Stonewall looked again into the experiences of over 3,700 lesbian, gay, bi and trans (LGBT) pupils in Britain’s schools. It found that:

  • Anti-LGBT bullying and language has decreased across Britain’s schools since the last report in 2012;
  • But almost half of all LGBT pupils still face bullying at school, and more than two in five trans young people have tried to take their own life.


Queer Futures (2016)

The Queer Futures research was published in 2016, and was an exploration of LGBT suicide, self-harm and help-seeking behaviour. Following extensive research with LGBT young people, this produced some very interesting findings in terms of LGBT young people accessing support:
  • That LGBT young people are most likely to seek support from an LGBT youth group or an LGBT individual


Youth Chances (2016)

This document provides an overview of the key findings from this five-year research project about the experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and questioning (LGBTQ) 16-25year olds in England.

The project surveyed 7,126 young people aged 16-25. Of these 6,514 were LGBTQ young people. 612 were heterosexual non-trans young people and 956 were trans young people. 29 commissioners of services for young people and 52 relevant service providers across England were also surveyed.

The findings show high levels of discrimination, abuse and mental health issues that young LGBTQ people face which indicate a need for more to be done to improve the lives of LGBTQ young people.


LGBT Youth Homelessness: A UK National Scoping of Cause, Prevalence, Response and Outcome (2015)


Produced by the Albert Kennedy Trust, this research reported that:

  • LGBT young people are more likely to find themselves homeless than their non LGBT peers, comprising up to 24% of the youth homeless population;
  • LGBT homeless youth are highly likely to have experienced familial rejection, abuse and violence (69%, AKT 2015);
  • Whilst homeless, they are significantly more likely to experience targeted violence, sexual exploitation, substance misuse, and physical & mental health problems than other homeless youth.



The School Report (2012)


Published in 2012 by Stonewall was a follow-up to the 2007 survey that explored the experience of LGBT young people in the school setting.

While the report showed some improvement, it still showed that over half of our lesbian, gay and bisexual students experience homophobic bullying at school, while nearly all students surveyed reported having heard homophobic language.






The Prevalence of Homophobia Surveys (2012)


The Prevalence of Homophobia Surveys have been undertaken by the NUT across the whole region. In the summer of 2012, the Greater Manchester survey was published. 87% of teachers surveyed had heard or seen homophobic abuse in their schools…
