Brighton & Hove Switchboard services update

April 3, 2020

Switchboard, Brighton’s LGBTQ+ support service, issued the following statement about their services for the next few weeks: “In the interests of protecting you, our staff, and volunteers, Switchboard is following the Government advice and cancelling all group meetings and events and supporting our staff to work from home. We don’t want to leave anyone isolated and without support so we’re working to find ways we can continue to offer services using phones and online technology. We’ll be extending our helpline and webchat provision and investigating how we can change the technology we use in order to enable staff and volunteers to do this from home. Please bear with us whilst we get this in place, we’ll let you know as soon as we’re in a position to reinstate and increase this service.

“In the meantime, all of our staff are working from home and available to support you. The staff members who run your usual groups will be in touch and we will keep you up to date on how to contact them and what we can offer as we plan the way forward. Our priority is to ensure that we’re here for everyone who needs us, that we work in ways that ensure you can remain safe, and that our volunteers and staff can also remain safe. Please get in touch with a member of our staff via email if you would like someone to call you – all of their contact details on our website.”
