Leeds LGBT+ Mapping Project report on how the third sector supports LGBT+ community action

This report investigates how funders and third sector infrastructure organisations currently support LGBT+ community action in Leeds.

Previous research from Leeds LGBT+ Mapping Project found that around half of the LGBT+ activity happening in the city was community led and volunteer run, and without regular funding. This raised concerns around the sustainability of LGBT+ community action in the city, and what is needed to support it.

Some key findings of this report
  • Supporting LGBT+ communities was not an identified priority for any of the organisations who participated in this survey.
  • Few of the organisations who responded to the survey said they were proactively seeking knowledge on assets and challenges on LGBT+ communities in Leeds by building links with LGBT+ groups and projects.
  • The majority the LGBT+ community action is undertaken by groups that are not formally constituted or registered with the Charities Commission. This means that they are are often ineligible to apply for funding.
