Life in Scotland for LGBT Young People

Closed 22 Dec 2021

Opened 26 Oct 2021


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.

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 they've run this five-yearly survey, and they want this one to be the biggest yet. It’s time for decision-makers in Scotland to hear the voices of LGBT young people. 

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 OK. If you need support about the issues raised you’ll find useful links in the survey. LGBT Youth Scotland here to support LGBT young people through LiveChat, email and youth groups. Find out more here

Why your views matter

Once all the numbers have been crunched, LGBT Youth Scotland 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 they 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!
