The London LGBTQ Almanac 3rd Edition survey is now open. You can complete the survey here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/centredAlmanacsurvey
The survey is for currently active, not-for-profit lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) groups, organisations and projects based in and serving England and Wales. We intend for the term ‘LGBTQ’ to be inclusive of all diverse organising around sexuality and gender identity.
We appreciate your valuable time in filling out this survey – the quality of the ultimate publications is a direct consequence of the personal efforts people make to include their organisations. The survey will take approximately 30min to complete.
Grassroots and arts projects are particularly encouraged to complete this survey as well as larger service providers and sports and social groups.
The information provided by organisations that are based in London will form the basis of the London LGBTQ Almanac 3rd Edition. London based organisations who complete the survey will receive a free copy of the Almanac, be entered into a prize draw and receive two free tickets to the LGBTQ tour of Soho. The Almanac provides a strategic information base for diverse London LGBTQ organisations to plan and develop and measures change to the London LGBTQ organising landscape year on year.
The Almanac 1st Edition is available here
The Almanac provides an opportunity to:
• Promote your work
• Connect with other groups
• Use information for planning and development
This year centred is working with a larger national research project about the impact of austerity on the LGBT voluntary sector. The national project is funded by the Trades Union Congress (TUC), delivered in collaboration with centred and the Consortium of LGBT Voluntary and Community Organisations and managed by the Centre for Corporate Responsibility, Diversity and HRM (CRDHRM) at London Metropolitan University. The national information will be used by CRDHRM to produce a report which identifies any changes taking place in the LGBTQ voluntary sector in a rapidly changing funding and policy climate. This collaboration has been established to save organisations time and to avoid duplication. Some of your information will be shared confidentially between these parties. We will not publish sensitive information about an individual organisation.
The survey asks about your purpose, activities, the people involved and impacted, your funding context if applicable, and more.
If applicable you might find it useful to have your management accounts up to 2013 to hand, as well as monitoring information about your participants or service users. If you do not record this information you can guesstimate.
