Our work changes lives.

“Without LGBT Youth Scotland I am not sure I’d still be around. The support, signposting and life skills have saved me countless times.”

LGBT Youth Scotland is Scotland’s national charity for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) young people. For more than 20 years we have been creating safe spaces where LGBTI young people aged 13-25 can flourish; reaching their full potential as they live, love and learn/ in life, work and education.

Young people are the future of Scotland, but we know that LGBTI young people face unique and additional barriers to realising their full potential and that is why we exist: We believe Scotland can be a place where all young people can thrive and flourish, so we work hard alongside young people to remove those barriers by supporting young people individually, and by amplifying their collective voices to make sure they are heard.

Young people are the heart of everything we do: Through our innovative youth work which empowers young people to feel a sense of belonging, and achieve their own goals; Through our equality accreditation programme, the LGBT Charter - we ensure the places young people live, learn and work are as inclusive as possible; Through our youth participation and policy work we position young people as experts in their own lives and amplify their voices to decision makers to inform positive change. 

We believe a truly inclusive Scotland is possible, and that together we can make it a reality.
