We greatly appreciate everyone who filled in our Needs Assessment Survey last year – the full report will be released soon.

As someone in the process of a mid-life transition, which, especially in the early stages, seemed almost impossibly daunting and terrifying, I have been repeatedly surprised, delighted and relieved by the acceptance I’ve received, especially at work and in shops and restaurants. I’ve also benefited enormously from the support available through LGBTQ+ networks in the area. I would really have loved to have had access to a drop in LGBTQ+ cafe or pub, for more casual day-to-day support and conversation. Nonetheless, I feel very fortunate to be transitioning here.
The best thing about living in South Cambs is being surrounded by a thoughtful, liberal, multicultural, and accepting community.

I like the access to countryside and open spaces, but there are limited social spaces for LGBTQ+.
Survey response
Outside of Cambridge people are more conservative.
Survey response
I like the open-mindedness of shops and people within the area, but there is a lack of nearby LGBT+ activities outside of the big towns and cities.
Survey response
There is a good queer/polyam/alt scene, easy reach of London for even better of all the above.
