Trans Survivors Switchboard

Trans Survivors Switchboard

Our Trans Survivors helpline provides support and information to trans and/or non-binary people or those who are questioning.

Operated by trans and/or non-binary volunteers, you can talk to us confidentially and anonymously.

We offer non-judgemental emotional support on a range of topics, specialising in providing support to those who have experienced crime, including sexual violence, at any point in their life.

Our trans helpline is open on Sundays from 3pm to 5pm:

  • Call us on 01273 204050
  • Live web chat (bottom right hand corner of the screen)
  • Email info@switchboard.org.uk (please put TSS in the subject and we’ll pass it on to the team)

This is the first service of its kind in the UK to offer specialist support for trans survivors. We are sex worker affirmative, LGBTQ affirmative and are skilled in working with people in vulnerable situations, such as those who are homeless or living with domestic abuse.
