EXAMPLES OF GOOD PRACTICE IN
LGBT Youth Scotland
Dundee, Dundee City
LGBT Scotland is the national youth organisation leading on the inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender young people in Scotland. It supports the development of local support services providing specialist youth work and youth support groups, training and outreach. It also works in partnership with a wide range of local services to make them more inclusive and accessible to LGBT young people.
Isolation is a big challenge for young LGBT people. In acknowledging their own sexual identity they fear rejection from families, friends and communities. This increases the challenges of navigating their way from childhood through adolescence and into adulthood. Our services provide individual support, group support, training and wider awareness raising on issues relating to rights, responsibilities, health, mental health and life choices. We support young LGBT people to raise their voices, raise their resilience and raise awareness of themselves and of improving equalities within the wider community.
