Life in Scotland for LGBT Young People
The survey on Life in Scotland for LGBT Young People 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. Each week until the end of the year we will run with a different theme and fresh graphics – so please keep sharing to help us reach more young people.
From Monday 18 October:
- If you work with young people aged 13-25 who might be eligible and interested, please share the link to the survey with them. There's also an introductory video which may help if your organisation wants to share this with groups directly.
- Print the poster with a QR code to the survey and put it up where young people can access it. The poster will be added to the folder above before the launch, but if you’d like us to send you a copy, just let us know.
- Share posts on launch week and beyond as the survey continues to be promoted and the different themes within it on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
Once all the numbers have been crunched, the research will be used to influence the Scottish Government, Police Scotland, the NHS and other decision-makers to make life in Scotland better for LGBT young people.
The survey runs every five years, which means LGBT Youth Scotland are also able to track how things change over time.
The survey covers a huge range of issues and it’s important to note that reporting these experiences may be difficult, so there is lots of guidance in the survey for sources of support should it be required.
To show their thanks, LGBT Youth Scotland have £50 online vouchers and will draw 20 people from a hat if they choose to enter once they have submitted their responses.
