WHO WE ARE
Originally called Tel-A-Friend and founded in 1974, Gay Switchboard Ireland is an LGBT+ support service.
It has been a constant support for the community throughout the past 40 years of social change.
The service has always been managed and delivered by friendly trained volunteers who come from the community that they support.
As Ireland’s oldest LGBT+ support service, Gay Switchboard Ireland looks forward to expanding and diversifying the ways in which it supports the community in the future.
