Brighton & Hove LGBT Switchboard

Brighton and Hove LGBT Switchboard was founded in 1975 and has been providing services to the LGBT community in Brighton and beyond ever since. Originally operating as a helpline Switchboard has expanded over the years to include a face-to-face counselling service and to provide diversity, awareness and LGBT affirmative practise training to local organisations.

Our mission is to "listen, support and inform". Whether you have a straightforward question about the scene, local groups or services for LGBT people or a sexual health enquiry we aim to answer your questions directly giving you accurate information or put you in touch with an organisation that has more specific expertise. It may be that you have a personal difficulty and want a listening ear and emotional support and you may need the opportunity to explore your difficulties in more depth. Our helpline is available every day from 5pm.

Our counselling service is available by appointment with a sliding scale of charges to ensure accessibility regardless of income. Counselling appointments are available during the day, the evening and at weekends and we will try to match your schedule as closely as possible.
