Counting On Us All
Well it has been 5 years since the first stirrings of Count Me In Too were first heard and since that time literally thousands of people have been involved in this piece of research in some form or another. Here are just some of the ways in which people have engaged with the project since 2005.
819 people completed the routed questionnaire survey in 2006
69 people took part in focus groups that complimented the data collected by survey
Over 50 people took part in analysis groups, steering groups and action groups.
Well over 250 people attended report launches, consultation sessions and other dissemination events.
120 people participated in the Transforming LGBT Lives conference in September 2010.
This really is just a drop in the ocean in terms of people who have engaged with Count Me In Too in some form or other. Our exhibitions in 2009 and 2010 were tremendously successful, with hundreds of visitors stopping by our stands in Jubilee Library (Brighton), The British Museum (London) and Brighton Pride.
We'd like to thank everyone who has been involved in Count Me In Too between 2005 and 2010.
A Farewell to Count Me In Too
The project has now drawn to a close. We reached the end of our funding period in December 2010 and achieved the goals that we set ourselves for this dissemination period. The project team and research information desk have now been closed and disbanded. Count Me In Too is no longer 'live'... but Count Me In Too is still alive...online at least!
- This website has been reorganised to form an archive of the project.
- Our library now contains a wealth of project information - not just our findings reports but also details on how we went about engaging in this piece of research.
- The conference page features information and a video of the tremendously successful Transforming LGBT Lives conference, held in September 2010.
- Our GScene column is archived online here and free to download.
And all of this information is available to you! For free!
All we ask is that you send a short email requesting permission to use or reproduce data to Kath Browne (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The project team would like to extend a massive thank you to all of you who took the time to fill in a questionnaire, attend a focus group, participate in one of the steering groups or action groups or otherwise engaged with the project. It was YOU who helped to make Count Me In Too what it became - an award-winning community-university research project that really did progress positive social change for LGBT people in Brighton & Hove. Thank you!!!
