Please read this. Here we explain what we are asking and why. Any information you give us is completely confidential and will never, ever be shared without your permission. Please click the red toggle for further details.
We ask you how you want us to contact you. We invite you to select what best describes your connection with the East End. Then we ask you to choose what activities interest and what issues concern you. All these are open check lists.
Finally we include diversity monitoring questions, mostly based on the 2011 census and Equality and Human Rights Commission templates, but with more meaningful sexual orientation and gender identity questions. You can choose to miss all or any part of that section — the default answer is that ‘you do not wish to say’.
However, we believe it is crucial that services to LGBT people monitor our communities experience, in all our
diversity, and that we have to break the taboo about asking the questions.
We also recognise that identity is not one-dimensional for many people; for some of us there are multiple community affinities, and complex experiences of prejudice and exclusion. Every answer is equally valid and there is no judgement. To repeat any information you give us is completely confidential and will never, ever be shared without your permission; that is why we encourage you to take five minutes to complete this form.
