Survivors’ Network and LGBT Switchboard run a dedicated helpline which offers support to trans people including those who are non-binary or questioning, who have experienced sexual violence at any point in their lifetime.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org (please put TSS in the subject and we’ll pass it on to the team)
The service is staffed by trans volunteers and is jointly run by Survivors’ Network and LGBT Switchboard. We offer non-judgemental emotional support and signposting to other organisations who may also be able to offer support. We are a confidential service and can be accessed anonymously by phone or web chat.
This is the first service of its kind in the UK to offer specialist support for trans survivors. We are sex worker affirmative, LGBT affirmative and are skilled in working with people in vulnerable situations, such as those who are homeless or living with domestic abuse.
