At the intersection of Scotland's Year of Young People and LGBT History Month – this conference aims to increase the skills of professionals across sectors in creating environments where LGBT children feel safe, supported and included. 


With keynote speeches from figures at the forefront of research, policy and youth work delivery, we have curated a lively and though-provoking programme, shaped by the lived experiences of LGBT young people who will facilitate workshops and share the moments that defined their childhoods. This forms the basis for an agenda that challenges delegates to think beyond the here and now and consider a future vision of Scotland that is truly inclusive for all is an online service designed to support and encourage parents and carers of children aged 5-19, with a collection of videos addressing day-to-day questions and concerns spanning wellbeing, behaviour and learning.
