Non-Emergency Housing Options for LGBT People Facing Hate Crime

This information sheet is for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans (LGBT) people who are considering their housing options because of homophobic, biphobic or transphobic hate crime.

Experiencing hate crime may feel totally overwhelming. It can affect your confidence and ability to think clearly about what is best for you. This is particularly the case if the abuse has occurred in or near your home, where your private living space has been violated. 

This resource outlines some of the non-emergency options available to you if you are considering moving as a result of hate crime. These will depend on factors such as your current housing situation, finances and support available locally. See the information sheet ‘Emergency housing for LGBT people facing hate crime’ if you need more immediate help. It is worth noting that housing law is complex and this document is not intended to be a legal guide. If you or someone you know needs to move as a result of hate crime, always seek the help of a specialist housing advocacy service.
