Here at Staverton, helping the environment and the LGBTQIA+ community are two causes close to our heart.
When the UK was plunged into lockdown 2/3 during autumn 2020, we were introduced to Switchboard — a charity that’s supported the LGBTQIA+ community since 1974 and the issues they continue to face.
Switchboard provides information, support and referral services for lesbians, gay men, bisexual and trans people — and anyone considering issues around their sexuality and/or gender identity.
We all wanted to support the LGBTQIA+ community and help the environment by ensuring the used furniture didn’t go to waste — a service we provide to all our clients.
Switchboard is a 100% confidential and helpline, and all of the charity’s volunteers self-define as LGBTQIA+. You can find out more about how they can help here, or if you need someone to talk to, call 0300 330 060.
