Tickets are now on sale for our LGBT History Month Concert at the renowned Gresham Centre near St. Paul’s. We’d love to give you all free tickets but sadly the intimate nature of the venue means we’re rather restricted, however active Switchboard volunteers are entitled to a concession price ticket at just £8!

Please do share the event with all your friends and family and hope to see you there! Tickets HERE.

Friday 26 January 2018 – 7pm ’til late @ Radicals and Victuallers

This year’s Switchboard Winter Party will take place at Radicals and Victuallers in Islington, a ten minute walk from Switchboard.

There will be a light buffet, two free drinks for volunteers and music and fun for all. Everyone can bring partners/friends/family to the party.

Look forward to seeing you all there!

We’re looking for volunteers to help manage our Google AdWords account. If you know anything about AdWords and can spare half hour every fortnight to check on the reports and adjust the terms being used then please get in touch with Jake (admin@switchboard.lgbt).

This November Gay Times Magazine are celebrating organisations and individuals who have had tremendous impact over the past 50 years in the UK, by launching the Gay Times Honours List.

Not only will they be taking a look at the great work which has been done, but also asking what it means to be gay today.

This is all happening in conjunction with the National Portrait Gallery.   The Gallery is marking 50 years of advances in gay rights with their I Am Me season exploring art, gender and identity and the 10th anniversary of their Queer Perspectives events.


Today I’ve done quite a bit of maintenancey type work on the volunteer portal.

I’ve created a shift view – currently static although adding a shift adds to the gravity form

Tidied up the documents view

Created new call reports forms

Created new policy for call reports and shared with volunteer who offered to help with this aspect of the new website

Split the CSS forms so that the back end only refers to new documents

Sent emails to volunteers who’d offered to help with development to get chat alpha testing started

This functionality has not yet been written.

If you’ve got an idea as to how we could run things differently at Switchboard, the trustees always want to hear your views.
