Evidence review of inequality among LGBT groups
Summary & aims
The aim of this review was to systematically identify and critically discuss the nature, robustness and strength of evidence on disadvantage and inequality among different LGBT groups, relative to other comparator groups in the UK. Building upon the findings of three previous reviews, this evidence review will highlight areas of policy concern, critically discussing how well these have been addressed in the literature. As such a key component of this review will be to identify gaps in research, setting out where there is robust evidence of LGBT disadvantage and inequality and where further research is needed.
Timescale and funder
