Switchboard, the national LGBTQ+ helpline, is moving to a brand-new free phone number making it even more accessible for callers across the UK to access their service.
From Saturday the 4th March, the 49th Birthday of the service, Switchboard will be taking calls from the new number 0800 0119 100.
Switchboard asks that Consortium members and partner organisations who refer service users to the helpline please update the number on their websites, social media posts, and anywhere else they signpost to Switchboard.
Switchboard will also be doing a social media campaign on Friday, 3rd of March and Saturday, 4th of March and would invite the Consortium community to please share and re-post to help spread the word far and wide about the new number.
Switchboard- the national LGBTQ+ Helpline- is a confidential helpline open to the LGBTQ+ communities and beyond, for anyone who wants to talk about gender identity, sexuality, sexual health and emotional well-being.
We operate a telephone line and instant messaging from 10am to 10pm, 365 days a year.
If you want to get in touch with Switchboard to talk with one of their volunteers you can do so via
the phone at 0800 0119 100 or via instant messaging at: www.switchboard.lgbt
The charity was founded in 1974 and was formerly known as London Lesbian and Gay
