Relationships and sex

Young gay, lesbian and bisexual people have the right to feel supported, respected and safe, to be listened to and understood.

Our advisers and youth workers can help with personal things that might be stopping you getting on with your life, and can talk to you about anything that might be worrying you.

There are other organisations you can contact for further help, information and advice.

Sexual health and contraception

If used properly, a condom is one of the best ways for people who are sexually active to help avoid sexually transmitted infections as well as to help prevent unwanted pregnancies.


Emotional, physical or sexual abuse is never the fault of the person being abused. If this is happening to you or someone you know, then there are several agencies you can talk to. However, you need to be aware that some agencies, such as Social Services or the Police, may be bound to act on the information you give them, whether you want them to or not.

Ask about their policy on confidentiality before you talk to them. For free confidential online advice visit KOOTH.

Family and friends 

Families, friends and partners are extremely important to most people but every relationship can have its problems.

If you do have a problem with someone, try to talk to them about it openly and you're more likely to find a solution. If you can't, talking to a friend, relative, teacher, youth worker or your careers adviser may help.
