About the event

Scouts Scotland has been given the opportunity to attend the LGBT National Youth Gathering, a Year of Young People event, and we have five spaces for young people aged between 14 and 25 to attend.

This event, which is hosted by LGBT Youth Scotland and Dumfries and Galloway Council and co-designed with LGBTI young people, will:

Encourage young people to work together to influence change

Give young people a voice and build confidence to celebrate their talents

Let young people share learning and best practice 

Engage young people in positive activities

Taster sessions will provide opportunities to try out new things or just have fun, giving participants the chance to explore sport, creative writing, drama, yoga, songwriting, spirituality and trans identity. A gala dinner will be followed by an evening of entertainment with some fantastic performers, chill-out space and open-mic opportunities. 

The event is for young people from a wide range of organisations and youth groups across Scotland.

Get involved

It costs £30 to attend the whole weekend event. Scouts Scotland will subsidise the event fee, travel from Edinburgh, accommodation and food.
