Survey seeks views of LGBT community in the East Riding of Yorkshire

East Riding of Yorkshire Council would like to hear from lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people in the East Riding and get their views on a range of issues, including experiences at work, in education, in healthcare and about personal safety.


The online survey is based on questions used in a recent national survey and aims to find out more about life for LGBT residents in the East Riding of Yorkshire.

The survey focuses on experiences of accessing and using public services in the East Riding and any experiences of discrimination that might be faced throughout life.

Those answering the survey should be:

  • lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or intersex, or have a minority sexual orientation or gender identity
  • 16-years-old or over
  • living in the East Riding.

Councillor Shaun Horton, cabinet portfolio holder for community involvement and council corporate services, said: “Recently, the Government undertook a survey to learn more about the experiences that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people have living in the UK.  

“Locally, we want to collect as much information as possible. After the survey closes, the council will analyse the results and use them to inform its LGBT needs assessment work and plans to improve LGBT equality in the East Riding.

“The survey is anonymous and takes around 15 minutes to answer. Respondents don’t have to answer every question if they don’t want to and can complete the survey in one go, or save their answers and come back to it later.”

The survey will run until Friday, 30 November.
