Switchboard LGBT+ helpline

0300 330 0630 (call charges apply, no more than to 01 or 02 numbers)



LGBT+ helpline offering a place for calm words when you need them most.

You can talk about anything with the Switchboard volunteers, who all self-define as LGBT+. Nothing is off limits, and the volunteers understand how anxious you might feel before you pick up the phone. Calls are confidential and they only finish when you’re ready.

You can talk (lines open everyday) or email Switchboad (emails typically replied to within 72 hours).

Online chat available on the website and it will say when it’s open/closed
