Gay Switchboard Ireland provides a confidential telephone support service.
Their friendly trained volunteers provide a safe space where listening, support, information and signposting are provided to all callers in a non- directive or judgmental way.
The service is available to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community (LGBT+), their parents, families and friends and to anyone who has concerns relating to sexuality, gender identity, sexual and mental health.
Gay Switchboard Ireland’s core values ensure that you will get a non judgemental and reassuring attitude from us when you make contact and values community engagement.
They have about 40 trained support volunteers who come from all walks of life. Equally, there is a range of ways that you can get support from us; from phone to dropping in for a face to face chat.
The service is operated entirely by trained, friendly and supportive volunteers who come from all walks of life and won’t judge you or tell you what to do.
Their confidentiality promise to you is that nobody else will be told about your call. Read Gay Switchboard Ireland’s confidentiality policy.
