The 2018 Faith & Sexuality Survey was designed to examine the role religious belief has on people’s understanding and acceptance of their sexual orientation in the UK.
It was promoted through a range of social media platforms and national newspapers, and ran from 9th – 31st December 2018. The survey was open to all individuals over 16 currently resident in the UK.
The project was co-ordinated by the Ozanne Foundation and was overseen by an influential Advisory Board consisting of some of the most senior statistical, religious and healthcare professionals in the UK:
Dr Jamie Harrison, Chair of the House of Laity, Church of England
Rabbi Laura Janner-Klausner, Senior Rabbi to Reform Judaism

Teddy Prout, Director of Community Services Humanists UK
Khakan Qureshi, Founder of Birmingham South Asian LGBT – Finding a Voice
Professor Sir Bernard Silverman, Former President of the Royal Statistical Society
