Gay and Lesbian Switchboard

Switchboard Globe Melbourne Partner

“Gay and Lesbian Switchboard (Victoria) Inc is a volunteer based organisation that provides a telephone counselling, referral and information service to the Victorian and Tasmanian LGBTI communities.

We also extend this service to family and friends and those who support the LGBTI community, such as health professionals, counsellors and teachers.

We are constantly updating our comprehensive database of queer community groups, organisations, businesses and services. Most of our database is available online, however to ensure appropriate referrals some sections can only be accessed by our trained volunteer telephone counsellors.

The database is a major component of our service delivery and our volunteer counsellors need to feel confident that the information is both accurate and can be accessed readily and reliably.

Switchboard is extremely grateful to have received $1000 through GLOBE’s Community Grants program.

The grant was used to replace one of our old PCs that was second hand when donated to us several years ago.

We feel we have moved from the Stone Age into the 21st Century. Thank you GLOBE!”
