Youth Chances is an action research project working to improve the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) young people across England. You can read our findings so far in the reports below.

Every Tuesday in May 2014 we will be looking at one of the 4 key concerns our research has identified for LGBTQ youth: schools, mental health, safety and risk and transgender experience. Find out more and join the discussion via Twitter…

These are our reports:
1. Youth Chances Summary of First Findings: the experiences of LGBTQ young people in England
2. Survey of 16-25 year olds: first reference report
3. Survey of commissioners: baseline report
4. Survey of service providers: baseline report

The first report presents the first findings from our survey of 16-25 year olds, alongside points from our survey of commissioners and our survey of service providers. The second report is a reference report for the survey of 16-25 year olds. Here you will find a detailed presentation of the survey development and dissemination. There is also first cut analysis of each of the 200 questions in the survey. The third report presents the method, data and findings from our survey of commissioners. The fourth report presents the method, data and findings from our survey of service providers.

You can learn about the project’s next steps and where you can get involved. We welcome your support and contribution.
