The Housing Guide

Stonewall has partnered with two of Britain’s leading gay housing charities to release a housing guide for lesbian, gay and bisexual people.

HousingguidecoverSince April 2007 it has been unlawful to discriminate against LGB people when providing goods and services. However recent YouGov research for Stonewall found that one in five lesbian and gay people still expect to be treated worse when applying for social housing and this rises to one in four among young (18-24) and older (over 55) gay people

The Housing Guide provides bespoke information for lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) people about renting accommodation, tenants’ rights and what to do if you’re at risk of becoming homeless. The guide is also useful for staff or family members offering support to LGB people through housing issues.

The guide also gives tips on staying safe and getting through the maze of putting a roof over your head. Often money and location affect your options for housing. This guide is designed to show that whatever your situation you do have choices and will not be treated differently because you are lesbian, gay or bisexual.
