Housing, Disability and LGBT Hate Crime - An Advisors Guide

This information sheet is aimed at those working to support disabled lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) people who have experienced hate crime or incidents that effect their housing.

LGBT disabled people who experience hate crime have very limited housing options. The lack of options and delays in receiving advice may lead to an increase in incidents and an escalation of severity of the anti-social behaviour. Hate crime can also have a negative impact on the physical health and mental wellbeing of the victim.

This information sheet will look at the intersection between LGBT hate crime, disability and housing.

This is not intended as legal guidance. Housing law is complex and the scope of this document is restricted. If you or someone you know is experiencing hate crime in or near their home and has a disability, always seek the help of a specialist housing advocacy service.
