UK student union carrying out survey on LGBT participation in sport

The UK's National Union of Students is carrying out a survey. While it's aimed at British students, we wanted to share this initiative, and of course encourage interested parties to participate.

As part of NUS LGBT's commitment to tackling LGBTphobia in sport, this project looks at barriers to student’s participation in sports and fitness, as well as ways to overcome them.

We are aiming for as many responses as possible in both further and higher education, so please take a few minutes to fill out this short survey, as well as forward it on as widely as possible.

The survey is running alongside focus groups at institutions across the UK exploring these barriers and potential solutions. The results will be disseminated in a report, and a toolkit will be created for students' unions and institutions in order to equip them to make sport more inclusive for LGBT students.
