The Michael Causer Foundation is a local charity that was established after the murder of Michael Causer in July 2008. Set up by Michael’s family and Merseyside’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, the Foundation supports young LGBT people in Merseyside, and challenges injustice and prejudice.
 
In partnership with Citizens Advice North Liverpool, we are currently researching what information and advice local lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people require to find the homes they need and whether there is a demand for specific LGBT accommodation within the region.

We aim to find out as much as possible about these needs and would be grateful if you could kindly complete this short survey.  Your answers will be kept strictly confidential, we do not ask for your name and we will not share any information that can identify individuals.
