Our youth work team offer different types of support. Choose the right option for you:

Meet like-minded people in a range of different settings across the country – or online

Talk to a youth worker online at regular slots each week (Monday to Thursday) 

Our online community for verified users, hosted on a secure, invite only Discord server

  • It takes a lot of courage to come and chat to us about your gender identity and/or sexual orientation.
  • We take that really seriously, and everything you tell us is confidential.
  • The only exception to this is if you tell us that you or another young person is not safe.
  •  If that is the case, then we may need to tell someone who is able to help.
  • We will always talk to you about we are going to do before we do it.
  • We really hope that you have a good experience with LGBT Youth Scotland, however we always want to know if there is a problem.
  • If you have any feedback about our services, you can email
  • If you would like to make a formal complaint you can do this by emailing and it will be investigated.
