Annual women's communications & services survey 2014

The Lesbian & Gay Foundation (The LGF) offers an array of different services which entertain, inform and support lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) women. This survey is about where you socialise and/or get support or information relevant to you as an LGB woman (whether through The LGF or other means). The information you provide will help us to ensure that we’re providing high quality support services, social activities and information resources that appeal to LGB women and that these are being promoted through the correct communication channels. The survey should take around 5 to 10 minutes, and to thank you for your time, you will be entered into a prize draw to win £50 worth of shopping vouchers! The information you provide will remain confidential and anonymous. Thank you for taking part.
