Survey: Life in Scotland for LGBT Young People

A new survey has been launched by LGBT Youth Scotland to gather the views and experiences of LGBT young people aged 13-25 about Life in Scotland today.

The survey aims to provide a snapshot of life across a whole range of areas, including education, the NHS, mental health, coming out, safety, work, home life, representation and the media.

This is the third time we’ve run this five-yearly survey, and we want this one to be the biggest yet.

It’s time for decision-makers in Scotland to hear the voices of LGBT young people.

Survey now closed. Thank you so much to all the young people who took part and to everyone who helped spread the word. The findings will be published this Spring - watch this space!

Why take the survey?

Once we’ve crunched all the numbers, we will use the research to influence the Scottish Government, Police Scotland, the NHS and other decision-makers to make life in Scotland better for LGBT young people.

It’s important that we hear from a wide range of people from across Scotland to make sure the research is representative of what’s happening in the real world.

When you complete the survey, you can enter a draw to win one of 20 £50 Amazon vouchers.

Because the survey covers so much it will take around 20-30 minutes to complete. It’s long, but it’ll be worth it!

Getting support

The survey covers a lot of areas, some of which might be difficult. Whilst we want as many people to take part as possible, we also understand people may want to skip some questions. That’s okay.

If you need support about the issues raised you’ll find useful links in the survey.

We are here to support LGBT young people through our LiveChat, email and youth groups. Find out more here.

Spreading the word

We need your help so the survey can reach as many LGBT young people as possible.

We’re asking you to:

  • Share the survey with young people you work with or support.
  • Download our images and suggested posts to promote the survey on different social media platforms, websites or newsletters.
  • Print the poster with a QR code to the survey and put it up in your venue where young people can access it.
