Switchboard has been supporting LGBTQ+ people in Sussex for almost 50 years – but we need your help to secure our future. Switchboard relies on donations from the public to continue providing our services.

By donating you will help us to reduce social isolation, improve mental wellbeing and offer a listening ear to LGBTQ+ people in Sussex.

“It has been the first time that someone has really listened to me and I feel so much better for calling you. You’ve really helped me and restored my faith in the community.” – Helpline caller
