Online Chat Service

Our national LGBT Helpline Scotland is delighted to announce the launch of a pilot online new messenger service. The 6-month pilot for LGBT adults, their families and supporters across Scotland, will run until the end of October 2018.

Despite positive steps in regards to equality legislation and public attitudes, many LGBT people throughout Scotland can still feel isolated. People contact the helpline seeking emotional support or information on a range of topics including sexual health, hate crime, coming out, housing, difficulties with relationships and mental health issues. We have a trained, non-judgmental and friendly team of staff and volunteers to respond to anyone getting in touch.

Stephen McCabe (Helpline Coordinator) explains that:

 

The new service is available weekly on a Tuesday from 3-9pm via this website. When a volunteer is available, you will see a pop-up box appear in the bottom right-hand corner of this webpage. Simply click on the box to begin communication.
