Monitoring Sexual Orientation, Gender and Trans Status

Profile Picture

Over the last two decades, the lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) community has seen legislative change which has led to greater acceptance. However, there is still a huge lack of evidence about LGBT people, our needs and experiences. Monitoring sexual orientation, gender identity and trans status is a proven way to address that lack of evidence. Championing sexual orientation and trans status monitoring for service users and staff across all public services is a key an organisational priority for LGBT Foundation.

It will be classed as a fundamental standard, meaning that it applies across the entirety of health and social care.
