Established in 2003, LGBT Health and Wellbeing works to improve the health, wellbeing and equality of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people in Scotland.
We provide support services, social events and develop resources so LGBT people can address the health issues that impact their lives and connect with their local communities. We address health inequalities with a wide range of partners to ensure LGBT people have access to quality healthcare that is inclusive of their needs.
A Scotland where LGBT people are no longer marginalised and invisible, where health inequalities are eradicated from society, and where the quality of life of LGBT people is continuously improving across every aspect of society.
Building a Scotland where LGBT people have equal access to support and resources informed by their needs, and opportunities to participate in and connect with their community.
To support LGBT people address health issues and promote community wellbeing
To reduce isolation and connect LGBT people to their local community
To raise the voices of LGBT people and provide opportunities to feedback into issues affecting their community
To improve LGBT people’s access to mainstream health services and information responsive to their needs
To build the capacity of services providers to deliver LGBT inclusive services
We provide a programme of support services and social events in Edinburgh and Glasgow. Find out more about our work and impact in our most recent Annual Report (2020-21) and Strategic Plan.
