LGBT Health & Wellbeing
Established in 2003, LGBT Health and Wellbeing works to improve the health, wellbeing and equality of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people in Scotland.
We provide support services, social events and develop resources so LGBT people can address the health issues that impact their lives and connect with their local communities. We address health inequalities with a wide range of partners to ensure LGBT people have access to quality healthcare that is inclusive of their needs. www.lgbthealth.org.uk
LGBT Youth Scotland
We are Scotland’s national charity for LGBTI young people, working with 13–25 year olds across the country. We also deliver the LGBT Charter programme to schools, organisations and businesses.
Our goal is to make Scotland the best place to grow up for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex young people. We play a leading role in the provision of quality youth work to LGBTI young people that promotes their health and wellbeing, and are a valued and influential partner in LGBTI equality and human rights. www.lgbtyouth.org.uk

The Centre for Homelessness Impact
The Centre for Homelessness Impact is an independent organisation that supports the use of data and evidence in bringing about a sustainable end to homelessness.
Good decision-making should be informed by the best available evidence of what works. As a member of the What Works Network, they support organisations in the field of homelessness and beyond to make evidence-led decisions and adopt evidence-led practices.
