LGBT Youth Scotland is the largest youth and community-based organisation for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people in Scotland. The charity's mission is to: “empower lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender young people and the wider LGBT community so that they are embraced as full members of the Scottish family at home, school and in every community.”
The work of LGBT Youth Scotland is delivered by a dedicated and hard working team of staff and volunteers, working across Scotland. The values and principles that underpin our work come from the field of community learning and development (CLD) and as such we use the CLD Competencies and the Code of Ethics in practice to guide and inform our work.

Particular values that inform our work include:
LGBT Youth Scotland has four strategic outcomes for its work over the next three to five years; each strategic outcome has a set of intermediate outcomes which informs our annual work planning cycle.
Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) young people will have good opportunities to meet and socialise with their peer group in a safe, friendly and informal environment, with access to non-formal learning opportunities.
Schools and the wider learning community are safe and welcoming environments for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) young people in order that they can become successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors.
Organisations and professionals will understand the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people and have the skills and knowledge to develop more inclusive services.
LGBT Youth Scotland is an effective and enterprising charity, sustaining good practice in leadership and management and CPD.
LGBT Youth Scotland recognises that youth work can enhance the life of any young person, contributing positively to young people's personal growth and to the communities they live in, and are part of.
