What Works LGBTQ+

Focussing on evidence for LGBTQ+ across the What Works Network

Who are we?

The What Works LGBTQ+ Group, was established in 2020 with the aim of bringing together the expertise that exists across the What Works Network to make the best possible evidence on ‘what works’ for LGBTQ+ communities available to decision makers. 

The What Works LGBTQ+ Group ultimately seeks to:

  • Better understand the evidence base around LGBTQ+ issues
  • Support in the efforts to improve data, including analysis and linkage
  • Support the evaluation of interventions for LGBTQ+ communities 
  • Build a focus on LGBTQ+ issues into the wider work of What Works Centres

Expert Advisors

The initiative is supported by an Expert Advisory Group who provide advice on research priorities, opportunities for collaboration, and the remit and scope of the group. The ambition is that in time, that they will also be able to review and advise on a portfolio of evaluative projects.
