LGBT Ireland's Support Line is a non-judgmental and confidential service providing listening, support and information to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people, their family and friends, and to those who are questioning if they might be LGBT. Our LGBT Support Line service is provided by a network of trained volunteers from a number of local LGBT services.

Gender Identity Family Support Line: Call 01 907 3707
From Sunday 25th March we will be running a Family Support Line service for parents and family members of trans and non-binary people. The service will run on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month from 6pm to 9pm. This service is delivered by trained volunteers who themselves have a family member who is trans or non-binary.
Trans specific shifts: Call 1890 929 539
On the third Sunday of each month between 6pm and 9pm we offer a Trans specific service, which means that the volunteers answering the phone and online chat during this time identify as Trans.
This service is aimed at people who need to talk about their Gender Identity or Expression and feel more comfortable talking with someone whom they know is Trans themselves.
