A message from a get2gether Ambassador:

“My life is a 100% changed in so many amazing ways since joining get2gether. Before I was stuck in a pretty lonely and confusing isolated life, not leaving the house or even travelling outside of Glasgow for 6 years. Since joining in July 2021, I have been able to achieve some huge achievements in my life which I never thought was possible for me. From my first job interview to my role as Ambassador, travelling for the first time independently and now on a regular basis to learning about sex, sexuality, relationships and gender, I now have supportive community around me where I’m seen as a whole person. get2gether gave me a safe space to learn who I am and recognise my worth” Ambassador Natalie
