~COVID-19 UPDATE: We are still offering web chat 3pm – midnight daily, however we have had to limit the hours that we take phone calls to 6pm – 10pm daily.
QLife provides Australia-wide anonymous, LGBTI peer support and referral for people wanting to talk about a range of issues including sexuality, identity, gender, bodies, feelings or relationships.
QLife services are free and include both telephone and webchat support, delivered by trained LGBTI community members across the country. Our services are for LGBTI individuals, their friends and families, and health professionals in Australia.
Beyond the telephone, QLife offers webchat for people who prefer online interactions or for whom the phone is impractical.
QLife is continually working to be inclusive and respectful of diversity - we will always strive to ask about your identity, gender or relationship and will not assume that we already know.
The National LGBTI Health Alliance is the contract holder and works in collaboration with four state-based partner organisations who deliver the services. Each of the partner organisations has a long history of providing counselling and support within their local LGBTI communities. The QLife partner organisations are; Diverse Voices in Qld, Living Proud in WA, Switchboard in Vic, and Twenty10 (incorporating GLCS) in NSW.
The most significant partnership within QLife is that with the many volunteers across the country, without these passionate volunteers QLife would be unable to continue to provide this essential service to our LGBTI communities.
