LGBT Switchboard delivers a range of services to improve the health and wellbeing of LGBTQ+ people throughout their lives. Delivering services ‘by and for’ the community, it has a deep understanding of the needs of LGBTQ+ people in the area. In addition to 10 targeted services for LGBTQ+ people, Switchboard also seeks to influence policy and change how local services are delivered.
LGBT Switchboard is a small charity with impressive reach, excellent local reputation and a very strong community focus. The voice of the people it supports is evident in everything it does, from the development of targeted services to meet the needs of older LGBTQ+ people living with dementia or coping with a bereavement, to using its deep understanding of the needs of the community to create change and influence how health and care services are delivered.
