LGBT Youth Homelessness: A UK National Scoping of Cause, Prevalence, Response and Outcome

This report highlights that there is a great deal left to be done in supporting young LGBT people. It is of concern that 30% of agencies still fail to monitor sexual orientation or gender identity in finding shelter or accommodation for homeless youth. Over 60% of youth reported being homeless specifically because of family rejection and yet many of the services surveyed for this report did not feel that specific services for these youth were required. Indeed only 2.6% of the housing services surveyed acknowledged the unique needs of homeless LGBT young people and had services to meet these needs.
