Decision
Carried

Strathclyde Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Switchboard is the last LGBT Switchboard in Scotland open 7 nights a week, every day of the year. The service provides support to LGBT people with a wide range of problems and provides a listening ear to all who call. The service is run by LGBT volunteers. The Switchboard has lost £20,000 funding from Greater Glasgow and Clyde Health Board and is in danger of closing. This is yet another example of how services for LGBT people are being disproportionately affected by the cuts.

Conference calls on the National LGBT Committee to write to Greater Glasgow & Clyde Health Board to ask them to restore funding to this vital project.
