Switchboard Victoria Inc is a community based not for profit organisation that provides a peer based, volunteer run support service for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Intersex (LGBTQI)people and their friends, families and allies.

Switchboard is the Victorian partner in the national telephone and web counselling, information and referral service Qlife. This service is for LGBTQI identifying people and those who have questions, concerns about LGBTQI issues, this includes families, friends, teachers and co workers of LGBTQI people.

Switchboard runs the social support service for older LGBTI Victorians called Out & About. This is in partnership with the National Community Visitors Scheme.

In 2017 Switchboard is establishing a parents and friends of LGBTQI people support group and is running a project called everybody Under the Rainbow to address the needs of LGBTQI people of colour from indigenous and non-indigenous backgrounds.

 Acknowledgement of country 

Switchboard is based on the lands of the Kulin nations, always and forever the home of the Wurundjeri, Boonwurrung, Wathaurong, Taungurong and Djadjawurung peoples. We acknowledge that our work takes place on lands that are under colonial occupation and that Kulin Nation sovereignty was never ceded here. We hope to pay our respects to Kulin Nation elders, past and present and wish to extend this respect to any and all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People.
