Switchboard LGBT+ - SAFE SPACE

  • Julia Salotti

From the Switchboard website: Since 1974 Switchboard has taken more than three million calls from people across the UK looking for a confidential and non-judgemental space – a safe space – to talk and feel supported. The last five decades has transformed life for our communities, however recent figures showing a two-fold increase in LGBT+ hate crime in England and Wales since 2014 reminds us of the challenges we still face and the necessity of safe spaces. In response to this we’ve partnered with RANKIN to create Safe Space – a multi-stage advertising campaign which will raise awareness of our services, especially in areas with poor representation, isolation or high incidence of hate crimes.
