As Pride Month comes to an end, we would like to take the time to be transparent about our values.
Research shows that LGBTQ+ people are more likely to find themselves homeless than their non-LGBTQ+ peers, comprising up to 24% of the youth homeless population (akt 2012). They are highly likely to have experienced familial rejection, abuse and violence (69%, akt 2015), and while homeless, they are significantly more likely to experience targeted violence, sexual exploitation, substance misuse, and physical & mental health problems than other homeless people. Therefore, as a Housing Association;
Family Housing is committed to continually learning and developing innovative ways to support our local communities. Therefore, if you would like to talk to us about our approach to supporting the LGBTQ+ community, please feel welcome to get in touch with us using our contact form.
To conclude, we hope everyone has had a safe and happy Pride Month! We can’t wait to get back out into the community to celebrate Pride again post-COVID.
