LGBT Helpline Scotland


We provide information and emotional support to the entire diversity of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT), non-binary, queer, intersex and asexual communities, their families, friends and supporters across Scotland.

We are also here to support those questioning or wanting to discuss their sexuality or gender identity. You do not necessarily have to identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender and we understand that these terms can feel limiting or irrelevant to some people when exploring their sexuality or gender identity.

People have called us about all sorts of things going on in their lives. It doesn’t necessarily have to be related to your sexuality or gender identity, you could call us to talk about feeling isolated or feeling down. No matter what is affecting you, we are here to listen. You don’t even need to have a solid ‘issue’ to discuss, you can call us if you are just looking for a bit of a chat.

Besides emotional support, we also provide information regarding various aspects of your health and we can signpost you to the right service in your local area. Maybe you want to find out what’s going on in your local community for LGBT people, or maybe you’re looking for specific information regarding your sexual health, your rights, etc…  Just let us know what you are looking for and we will do our best to find out for you.
