Purpose of this survey

Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey. Your experiences and views are incredibly helpful to us. Please provide sincere answers to all questions which you feel comfortable answering.

The information collected anonymously by this survey will be used to inform the work of forum+. Specifically, we hope that this survey will allow us to identify which groups within the Camden and Islington LGBTQ+ community are most in need of our support, and the ways in which we can most effectively support them.

Please answer all questions in this survey on the basis of your experience of the entire Covid-19 pandemic so far, unless instructed otherwise. Some questions make reference specifically to ‘the latest U.K. lockdown’. This refers to the third national lockdown, which officially began on the 6th January 2021.
