NEW Youth Commission for care experienced young people

Are you LGBTI? Are you between 13-25 and living in Scotland? Are you care experienced* or have you had experience of care in the past? Are you passionate about using your voice to influence positive change? Or do you know someone who is?


If you answered YES – we want to work with you!

LGBT Youth Scotland is setting up a new Youth Commission for care experienced young people (and their allies). We want to hear young people’s views on:

  • What’s working and what isn’t?
  • But most importantly, what are we going to do about it?

We believe that sharing those experiences can help shape the future of the care system in Scotland.

The Youth Commission will meet once every six weeks (travel costs and lunch provided). Here we’ll look for opportunities to engage with service providers, decision makers and reach out to more care experienced young people.

Youth Commissioners will have an opportunity to make a difference, develop new skills and meet new people.

  • “Knowing that what I say has an impact on services and can help improve things is so rewarding... My confidence to answer questions, share my personal story and improvise around material is now so high...”

(Youth Commissioner, at LGBT Youth Scotland)
