Pink Saltire are the local charity supporting LGBT people in Fife since 2014.  Our ambition is to improve the representation, visibility and opportunities for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people all over the country.  We operate from our base at The Hive LGBT Centre in Kirkcaldy.

Research conducted by our charity have shown that the LGBT community have low levels of trust in service providers, just 19% saying they trust public services to meet their specific needs. This is reduced further amongst young people and the transgender community. Low levels of trust can often be down to negative previous experiences, or the perception of discrimination or stigma which still exists for our community.

We continue to be a strong voice for LGBT+ people in Fife.

Pink Saltire are the local charity supporting LGBT people in Fife since 2014.  Our ambition is to improve the representation, visibility and opportunities for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people all over the country.  We operate from our base at the new Hive LGBT Centre in Kirkcaldy.

Research conducted by our charity have shown that the LGBT community have low levels of trust in service providers, just 19% saying they trust public services to meet their specific needs.  This can often be down to negative previous experiences, or the perception of discrimination or stigma which still exists for our community.

Our current programmes open for referral are:

Pink Saltire Counselling for Fife - we know the pandemic has had a major impact on all our wellbeing, especially our mental health.  Research conducted by us in 2020 with over 1,000 adults in Scotland identified that 66% had experienced loneliness during the lockdown and more than half wanted support for their mental health. With services already stretched before COVID arrived, we're creating extra capacity to open a new service to support the mental health of LGBT+ people over 18 in Fife.  The service is free and completely confidential, managed by other LGBT people who are trained professionals.  For referrals: This email address is being protected from spambots.

COVID Support Fund - we understand some people are struggling with the basics as the economic impact of COVID takes its toll. Research conducted by us in 2020 outlines the stark challenges, with 38% of respondents telling us they didnt have enough food during lockdown and nearly 40% facing financial problems.  Shockingly, more than a third said they didnt know where to find support.  We can help.  Pink Saltire's COVID Support Fund is designed to give a helping hand, whether it be a shopping voucher, a mobile top-up or maybe a care pack.

Both services are kindly funded by Comic Relief's LGBT COVID Fund.
