Survivors’ Network and LGBT Switchboard launch the first national helpline for trans survivors of sexual violence

We are a helpline which offers support to trans people including those who are non-binary and questioning who have experienced sexual violence at any point in their lifetime. 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.

The service is staffed by trans volunteers and is jointly run by Survivors Network and LGBT Switchboard. The Helpline will be open every Sunday 1-5pm. 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.
