The youth commission will work in partnership with other young people, staff and volunteers to take forward ideas on how to create a healthcare system which provides safe, equal, and adequate level of care for all.

This opportunity is available for trans and non-binary young people aged 13 to 25, who live in Scotland and are passionate about trans rights. No experience is necessary taking part in similar projects and LGBT Youth Scotland particularly welcomes new members who are women/ feminine people; Black and Brown children and young people and those with a disability. 

Youth commissions are a great way to get a taste for activism, get experience in policy and influencing, make new friends, increase confidence and develop skills. For more information, please contact: sarah.anderson@lgbtyouth.org.uk
