Launched in February 2021, the Midlands LGBT+ Project runs adult support and social groups, training, workshops, LGBT+ events and advocates for LGBT+ people.  It is funded by the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth and the National Office of Suicide Protection and managed by Youth Work Ireland Laois.  After a busy first year, we want to review our activity to identify what we can improve.  For this, we need your help!
This research involves an anonymous questionnaire run by Dr Ingrid Holme, partially funded by Healthy Laois.  Ingrid will analyse the data and write a short report for the LGBT+ Midlands Project team.  This information will let us tailor our work to your specific interests and ensure we deliver a high-quality programme. 
Why are we asking you to fill this in?
You are invited to participate because you have seen this link on social media or participated in one of the Midlands LGBT+ Project activities. 

The questionnaire is open to everyone -you do not have to live in the Midland/Kildare Region or identify as LGBT+.

How long will it take, and what will I be asked?
The first part of the survey takes approximately 6 minutes.  This section asks about your general experience with the project, any suggestions, and brief details about who you are.
The second part takes about 15 minutes.  It asks about your experience in more detail and includes issues which may impact current service provision.
