Meeting the needs of LGBTQIA+ people affected by crime

Victim Support Scotland provides free and confidential emotional and practical support to people following a crime and those going to court as a witness. You can find out more about our services here.

This survey asks for your views about Victim Support Scotland’s support services and whether they meet the needs of LGBTQIA+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex and Asexual) people and the wider LGBTQIA+ community.

We will use the anonymised findings of survey data in reports and publications about our work and use our findings to help develop and improve our services.

You are welcome to complete the survey whether you have used the services of Victim Support Scotland or not.

What does the survey involve?
The 5-10 minute survey is anonymous. Some of the information we ask for such as gender identity and the region you live in, helps us understand how we are meeting a variety of needs in the community.

The survey does not ask you to give details about crime or any other reason for seeking support. You have the option to answer ‘prefer not to say’ or just to leave the answer blank.

If you need support after a crime
Please call the Victim Support Scotland helpline on 0800 160 1985 or access support via our webchat service in the bottom right on this page.

This survey is open to anyone. Please contact us if you would like the survey in another language or another accessible format or if you have any questions.

Please make sure that you click SUBMIT at the end of the survey to send us your answers.
