History of the Brighton & Hove LGBT Trust & Confidence Survey

The idea for a 'Trust and Confidence Survey' came out of Brighton & Hove LGBT Community Safety Forum public meetings during 2012. With a message from LGBT groups that hate crime was a significant factor in the City, where higher than average numbers of the LGBT community live and socialise, the community wanted a survey to measure the baseline levels of trust and confidence in police and council services, to deal with this situation. They were also mindful of a recent Police Survey: 'Sexual Orientation and Transgender Related Incidents - Understanding Under Reporting' and the 'Count Me In Too' survey report from 2007.
