Community Outreach

Across Scotland there are many diverse and unique gay and bisexual communities, which come together in our cities, towns and venues. 

We’re proud to be part of that community. We are currently funded to deliver community services in Lothian, Forth Valley and, as part of Waverley Care, in Highland and Argyll & Bute.

You’ll find us in the community making sure people can access information and advice and distributing condoms and lube.

We also have a presence on apps, such as Grindr, where you can ask questions about anything relating to the sex you are having, your wellbeing and safer sex.

Peer Research

At SX, we are keen to involve members of the community in our work. This will help us to ensure that we’re providing the type of support that people want.

From time to time we conduct research on a range of issues through face-to-face conversations, focus groups and surveys. We train members of our community to become Volunteer Peer Researchers to help generate insight into the sensitive and relevant issues that are important to you.

If you are interested in becoming a Volunteer Peer Researcher contact the SX team to find out more.
