Switchboard

About this service

Non judgemental | Confidential | Anonymous

Switchboard offers support to the gender diverse, sex diverse and same sex attracted communities, and their supporters, through our telephone and web counselling services. Our service is caller-centred, non-judgmental, confidential and anonymous.

We affirm the experiences and aspirations and support the general health and wellbeing of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ) people. We offer support, not advice.

Switchboard is a partner in the national QLife project.
