LGBTQI peer phone and web counselling

Switchboard is the Victorian partner of QLife; a national organisation that provides a peer-based telephone and web counselling service.

Interested in becoming a phone or web chat counsellor? We provide quality training and ongoing support within a safe and supportive environment. “Peer-based” means that all of our volunteer telephone and web counsellors identify as LGBTQI.

Switchboard’s recruitment and training of new Telephone and Webchat Counsellors occurs twice a year. Applications for our Autumn intake have recently closed and will reopen again in Spring 2018. If you are interested in joining our team of counselors, and would like to submit an expression of interest, please complete this form.

Out & About

Out & About is a home-based visiting service for LGBTQI people who are experiencing social isolation. Volunteer visitors receive training and support, and benefit from building relationships with others (who are usually older people). View the Out & About page to discover more and express interest in volunteering.
