We are highlighting the Switchboard LGBT+ Helpline as we believe it is important to signpost a service which is there from 10 am to 10 pm, 365 days of the year, run by LGBT+ volunteers for the benefit of the LGBT+ community.

If you need someone to talk to, call the Switchboard, they are wonderful people and can signpost you to other groups and services as well.
