Equality in Housing podcast

Housing Options Scotland and CaCHE (UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence) have joined forces to produce a series of stories about why inclusive and accessible housing and related services are key to people’s lives.

In this podcast, Janice Stevenson, Development Officer at LGBT Youth Scotland, a youth work service providing youth groups for LGBT young people across Scotland raises various issues that we know many organisations face, which includes a lack of data to help providers deliver appropriate services. Janice’s work focuses on influencing policy in Scotland for LGBT youth populations. A broad range of important issues are covered, including: 

  • discrimination in housing for LGBT people 
  • challenges with people not recognising their own rights to housing 
  • issues with gatekeeping in accessing services.
