Out on my own: Understanding the experiences and needs of homeless lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth

The research project investigated the needs and experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) homeless youth in Brighton and Hove. This was done through interviews and questionnaires with 44 LGBT youth who were homeless or had been homeless in the past and through interviews with 21 local service providers. The report makes recommendations about how local services can be improved for LGBT homeless youth and how homelessness in this population could be prevented; in particular it identifies how the provision of specialist accommodation for homeless LGBT youth would prevent further homelessness and improve their health.
