Besi Besemar July 24, 2019

Brighton & Hove’s LGBT+ Switchboard’s Helpline will now be open from 7pm to 9:30pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays. There will also be a trans-only webchat available on Sundays, from 3pm to 5pm.

A spokesperson for Switchboard said: “Consolidating our hours means we can be there for the community when you need us. We’ve supported LGBTQ and questioning people in the South East since 1975.”

“We plan to extend our hours in 2020, when we’re celebrating 45 years of listening to the LGBTQ communities.

The helpline is confidential and run by LGBT+ volunteers. If you want to get in contact with Switchboard, you can:
