Community Groups

You can browse this list of community groups by location, with separate sections for Edinburgh and Glasgow. This directory provides the details of all the community groups that are supported by us, as well as a directories for a number of physical activity groups, art groups and community social groups. For a comprehensive directory of LGBT groups and organisations across Scotland please visit the Equality NetworkScotsGay‘s and LGBT Scotland websites. 

Some community groups are supported and promoted by LGBT Health and Wellbeing. They are, however, self-managed and self-organising, so their regular activities are not facilitated by LGBT Health and Wellbeing staff.

Want to start a community group?

Do you have a hobby or interest that you’d like to share with others? Have you thought about joining a community group but haven’t found one that you were passionate about? Why not start a brand new group?

We have lots of experience in helping individuals start up and develop successful community groups. We can assist you with planning and publicity, identifying a suitable venue and can provide ongoing support throughout the group’s existence, so don’t hesitate to get in contact if you have an idea you’d like to discuss further.

Jules is responsible for supporting community groups and community group leaders in Edinburgh. If you wish to speak to her about any aspect of a community groups, do not hesitate to contact her via or call 0131 523 1104.

We cannot support community groups at the moment but watch this space for future updates.
