LGBT Youth Scotland

We are Scotland’s national charity for LGBTI young people, working with 13–25 year olds across the country. We also deliver the LGBT Charter programme to schools, organisations and businesses.

Our goal is to make Scotland the best place to grow up for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex young people. We play a leading role in the provision of quality youth work to LGBTI young people that promotes their health and wellbeing, and are a valued and influential partner in LGBTI equality and human rights.

Equality Network

The Equality Network is a leading national charity working for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) equality and human rights in Scotland.

The Equality Network was founded back in 1997 as a national organisation working for LGBT rights and equality in Scotland. We are a registered charity governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees.

Partnership is a key part of our approach, and much of what we do involves working in partnership with diverse LGBTI people, other LGBTI organisations, and with organisations working in the wider equality and human rights field.
