Join Healthwatch Southwark and Southwark LGBT Network borough consultation 2018 05/07/2018. Healthwatch Southwark is partnering with the Southwark LGBT Network to deliver a borough wide survey on the needs of the LGBTQ+ community in Southwark, and hope to share the findings with you in January 2019. This is the first major LGBTQ+ survey of its kind in Southwark. TAKE SURVEY HERE
As a very important and populous group in the borough, we want to ensure that the needs of seldom heard communities in the borough are fully realised. The results will be used to hold services to account concerning local needs, and help us create priority areas of work. We want to ensure that your voices are heard by local services to create a better Southwark for you to live in.
We want to know what life is like for LGBTQ+ people living in Southwark especially around health. That’s why we’ve organised this survey. It includes questions that we think are relevant to LGBTQ+ people and that will help us better understand local needs.
To answer this survey, you must be:
Aged 16 or over; and
Live in Southwark.
This survey asked questions about:
Your personal experiences in the borough;
Where you socialise;
Health and social care needs; and
Whether other protected characteristic affected your experience as an LGBTQ+ individual. E.g. ethnicity or disability
Your thought and opinions are very important to us; without them, we will be unable to create true change in the borough.
The consultation period is from beginning of July 2018 till the end of September 2018.
