Orkney Island Council is an inclusive organisation. Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) staff, service users and young people should know we, as an organisation, will treat you with respect.
We are committed to ensuring that anyone who identifies as LGBT is treated fairly and has the same opportunities as anyone else.
For our young people who attend school in Orkney, we are aware that, if you think you may be LGBT, it can feel like you are alone and there is no support. The staff at your school will be happy to talk to you about any questions concerning sexual orientation or gender identity and will listen to you respectfully, without judgement.
Should you, your friends, or your family, wish to find out information on your own, the links to the LGBT website can help you. All links are available from the 'Related Sites' section of this page.
