Rainbow Families Project

Events, information and support for LGBTQI families who live in or travel to Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Rainbow Families Events

Rainbow Families events are for specifically for anyone looking to meet other LGBTQI parents, share experiences and socialise in a family setting. It’s a friendly and relaxed group with a really diverse mix of coupled and single LGBTQI parents and their children taking part.  We have previously organised visits to soft play centres, museums, parks & gardens and other family-friendly locations.

Family friendly LGBTQI Events

As part of our Special Events programme, we provide community events that are family-friendly.  Though these events are not specifically for parents and families, the family-friendly symbol indicates that all ages are welcome.

Information and Social Events for Parents

We provide quarterly information events for LGBTQI parents, involving a range of topics to support families, such as family planning, dealing with school and nursery experience and coming out.  We’re keen to hear from parents about the topics that are most relevant and of interest to you.  During these events there is plenty of opportunity to socialise and meet other parents from the community, pick up information and meet the Rainbow Families team to find out about the range of services LGBT Health and Wellbeing offer.
