28 May 2020   |    News
We’re coordinating closely with the other national LGBTI organisations. Both LGBT Youth Scotland and LGBT Health and Wellbeing are providing increased direct support services to the the LGBTI community.
LGBTI people may be separated at the current time from those who best know, understand, and support us. And for many reasons including health, discrimination, and poverty, some of us will be particularly hard hit by the current crisis. We have included below details of expanded support services available to all LGBTI people, provided by our friends at LGBT Health and Wellbeing, and LGBT Youth Scotland.
If you or others you need support, don’t hesitate to reach out to the LGBT organisations – they are here for you.
