Healthwatch Wiltshire would like to hear what children and young people think of local health and support services for young LGBTQ+ people.

We’re asking anyone aged 11-25 who identifies as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, or who is questioning their sexual or gender identity, to share their experiences of support they’ve received and tell us what support they’d like to see in their school, college or workplace and in their local community.

Our Young Healthwatch Wiltshire volunteers have devised a short, anonymous survey to gather your views which will be shared with NHS leaders and other decision makers to help improve local services.

Young Healthwatch volunteer Robyn Moore said: “We know that people who identify as LGBTQ+ are more likely to experience mental ill health and we are particularly keen to hear what children and young people think of the support available in Wiltshire and what else they would like to see.

“Please take a few minutes to share your views – all feedback is completely anonymous and will be treated in confidence.”

Take part in the survey here: smartsurvey.co.uk/s/LGBTQx

You can also come and chat to us at Salisbury Pride Festival on Saturday 4 September or at the Be Active 2021 Showcase in Devizes on the same day.
