Other Local Sources of Help 

There are police Diversity Officers in Devon and Cornwall and Equality Champions in Dorset Bournemouth and Poole, who we know have a brilliant track-record in providing help and support in times of crisis for people affected by homophobic biphobic or transphobic crime. If you want to contact one of these, have a look at our local policing pages for Devon and Cornwall or Dorset or Wiltshire, and call their main switchboards.

Other organisations and their helplines are listed on Intercom's website as a service to the public and in good faith, but Intercom can take no responsibility for services or sites provided by any other organisation.


 

Our confidential LGBT helpline is 0800 612 3010.

 

This helpline is free to call from UK mobiles and from landlines. All our helpline staff and volunteers are lesbian / gay / bisexual or trans people who are understanding, non-judgemental, understanding and sympathetic. If you would like to know more about our Helpline, go to our helpline page. We can also sometimes offer advocacy --- that is, we can help people deal with organisations that are letting them down because of homophobic or transphobic discrimination or prejudice.
