LGBT Youth Scotland

This report details the findings of a qualitative research study on LGBT Youth Scotland’s digital youth work, delivered in partnership with YouthLink Scotland, LGBT Youth Scotland, Northern Star and University of Edinburgh.

The study explored the impact of digital youth work on young people who participated during the coronavirus lockdown from March to July 2020. The study used Dr Sue Cooper’s Transformative Evaluation methodology. Youth workers from LGBT Youth Scotland were trained to become research practitioners and gather impact stories from 22 young people. Young people shared their reflections of significant changes they had experienced as a result of participating in digital youth work during lockdown. The stories were then contextualised by the youth workers to generate rich, co-authored significant change stories.
