NATIONAL LGBTQIA+ SUPPORT LINE
Switchboard is the national LGBTQIA+ support line. For anyone, anywhere in the country, at any point in their journey. We can discuss anything related to sexuality and gender identity. Whether it’s sexual health, relationships or just the way you’re feeling. This is your space – to explore, talk and be truly heard.Donate
We are non-judgmental.
And whatever you tell us will stay between us.
We talk things through.
So that you have the options to make your own decisions.
We are all LGBTQIA+.
We know navigating some of these issues can be difficult.
We’ve been equipping the LGBTQIA+ community and its allies with information and support for five decades.
And we're continuing to work toward a society where anyone can be heard and thrive.
Our dedicated volunteers give up their time to offer calm words when people need them most, every day of the year. We receive no statutory support and rely entirely on the generosity of our friends and supporters to help cover our running costs such as a free phoneline, heating bills and IT expenses. Without this generous support, we couldn’t continue creating space for people to feel heard and find the support they need.
On average it costs £16 for full wrap-around coverage of each conversation and we have around 15,000 conversations every year. If you would like to help us support even more people, please donate today.Donate
