Coronavirus update...

LGBT Helpline Scotland has been awarded extra funding by the Scottish Government to increase delivery from our usual Tuesday and Wednesday hours.

The helpline will now be open:

Tuesdays from 12:00pm - 9:00pm
Wednesdays from 12:00pm - 9:00pm

Thursdays from 1:00pm - 6:00pm
Sundays from 1:00pm - 6:00pm

Feel free to call us, emails us or livechat with us online during these times. We can support with all kinds of issues, as well as sexual orientation and gender identity. If you are LGBTQ+ and the current situation is affecting you, we are here to offer you a friendly ear as often and as regularly as you need it.

Call us, email us or live chat with us online.

We provide information and emotional support to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and their families, friends and supporters across Scotland. We are also here to support those questioning or wanting to discuss their sexuality or gender identity.

Why call the helpline?

You can bring anything to the call. We have access to a wide range of information on, for example, sexual health, support organisations, social groups, the commercial ‘scene’ and where to get support with any issues you have. We are also here for you if you just want to talk. It can be comforting to explore your feelings, get something off your chest or just to know that you are not alone. We can discuss a range of issues with you including sexuality, coming out, gender identity, relationships and sexual and emotional wellbeing. We understand that it can be difficult to pick up the phone, but please remember that your call is confidential and we are not here to judge you or tell you what to do; simply to support you in whatever you are going through.

Our helpline is also here for partners, family and friends of LGBT+ people, or others such as professionals who are supporting people with issues around their sexual orientation or gender identity.

What will the call cost?

Calls to this number will cost you the same as calls to local landline numbers and they are included in any special call allowances or packages you may have either on a mobile or landline.
