Better Out Than In

Growing up can be tough and being LGBTI+ can bring more challenges. Taking the brave step of opening up to someone about your worries and fears, no matter how big or small, is worth it. This Better Out Than In hub allows you to check out a range of face to face, online, phone and text supports and discover which one feels best for you.

24/7 ANONYMOUS TEXT SUPPORT

If you need support about any type of crisis, you can chat in confidence, 24/7 with a trained crisis volunteer through the Crisis Text Line. Connect with a trained volunteer who will listen to you and help you move towards feeling better. Here’s how the support service works:

  1. Text LGBTI+ to 50808 anytime when you need support. This is a free 24-hour service.
  2. A trained volunteer will listen to you and help you think more clearly, enabling you to know that you can take the next step to feel better.

You can find support for urgent issues such as bullying, relationship breakdown, self-harm, suicidal thoughts and abuse or assault. This is a confidential service, using a secure online platform and is free to use.

Text LGBTI+ to 50808 to begin.
