Description

The LiveChat feature of the LGBT Youth Scotland website is an easy way to chat with trained youth workers in real-time about whatever is on your mind. It’s text-based: you don’t need to speak over voice or video and can remain anonymous.

From questioning your gender or sexual orientation, coming out and relationship issues to bullying and sexual health – this is a private place designed for you to chat, confidentially, with a digital youth worker.

If you would like to chat online but aren’t free during the LiveChat times – let the LGBT Youth Scotland team know and they might be able to open it for you.  If LiveChat isn’t open you can send a message by emailing info@lgbtyouth.org.uk or clicking “Send Message” in the bottom right corner of the website – just make sure to type your email address in carefully or the team will not be able to get back to you.
