LGBT Ireland

LGBT Ireland is a national support service for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender people and their families and friends.

The service was established in 2010 by seven local LGBT helplines, who shared a vision to create an infrastructure to enable them to offer support and information nationally through their network of trained volunteers.

Today LGBT Ireland offers a comprehensive range of services which provide support and information on issues relating to sexuality and gender identity.

Non-judgmental, confidential listening and support, is provided seven days a week through the telephone helpline 1890 929 539 and through our online instant messaging service available here.  While this dedicated website provides a gateway to information and support throughout the country.

The peer support service established in 2014, offers opportunities for people to come together on a monthly basis, to provide emotional and practical support to each other around a common experience or situation.  Click here for more details about the groups we offer.

LGBT Ireland also delivers LGBT awareness training to other services and community groups, to enhance the support received by LGBT people accessing these services and groups.

LGBT Ireland works with partner organisations to expand the support available to LGBT people and their family members, including with Samaritans Ireland through their Direct Dial and Connect programmes.
