These confidential services provide an active listening ear and emotional support for people who would like to share about issues troubling them, such as sexuality, identity, relationships, mental health and sexual health. We also provide information on LGBTQ+ community resources and LGBTQ-affirming professional resources.
The hotline service was established in 2006, and the Whatsapp service followed in 2013. Calls and chats are handled by a team of specially-trained LGBTQ+ and LGBTQ-affirming volunteers who will ensure the confidentiality of every call. The team is supported by experienced volunteers and staff, and everyone is expected to adhere to our Code of Ethics for volunteers.
We apologise for these services being unavailable outside the publicised hours, and wish to highlight that the Whatsapp service is only able to accept messsages, not Whatsapp calls or SMS text messages.
As a queer-affirming counselling service based in Singapore, we would like to prioritise our support for clients who are in Singapore & neighbouring countries (Malaysia, Indonesia & Brunei). Do add the Singapore dialling code +65 when contacting us from overseas.
