Research & Development

We have been delivering a programme of research & development, with our client and partner organisations, on equality, diversity and inclusion.


‘Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Toolkit’

We have been working in partnership with the Substance Misuse Team, Bristol City Council, to produce an ‘Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Toolkit’ for Bristol’s substance misuse services. We have produced an Equalities Standard, Good Practice Guidance, a Step By Step Guide, fact sheets, poster, a DVD and an online media resource. Click onto the links below to access these resources.

’Bristol ROADS Research Report: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Trans Communities

We have launched a new report on access to substance misuse services by Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans communities in Bristol. The report highlights the need for specialist and targeted services to improve the reach to LGB and Trans communities in Bristol.

Berkeley Wilde, Director of the Diversity Trust said: “Whilst there are higher levels of substance misuse amongst LGB and Trans communities, there are low levels of uptake of services. Our report looks in detail at the available evidence from across the country. We have looked at access, barriers, prevelance and service use, and we are making recommendations to local commissioners and service providers for change. We are continuing our work with Bristol ROADS providers to increase the uptake of services by LGB and Trans communities locally.”

‘Sorted Out’: Bristol Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Trans Survey

Safer Bristol commissioned us to make recommendations on the monitoring of gender identity and sexual orientation and to identify the prevalence and patterns of substance use amongst LGB and Trans communities, and to make recommendations to improve access to services for LGB and Trans communities. Here are the results:
