QLife provides anonymous, LGBTIQ+ peer support and referral for people in Australia 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 LGBTIQ+individuals, their friends and families, and health professionals.
QLife is funded by the Australian Government and operates as a unique partnership model. LGBTIQ+ Health Australia is the contract holder and works in collaboration with four state-based partner organisations that deliver the services. Each of the partner organisations has a long history of providing counselling and support within their local LGBTIQ+ 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.
