QLife - peer support services


QLife is currently being evaluated - if you have used, tried to use or heard about QLife, please take a few minutes to complete an anonymous online survey here.

Thanks for visiting the QLife website. Now more than ever accessing support is really important as we manage the challenges relating to COVID-19.
We want to let you know that you may experience a longer than usual wait for QLife services at present as we are currently reorientating the service so that people are working in line with spatial distancing protocols to protect QLife staff and volunteers from COVID-19.

To help support as many community members as possible we will be limiting calls and chats to 20 minutes.

We appreciate your patience during this time and look forward to continuing to support our LGBTIQ+ communities. We will keep our communities updated as further service changes occur. You can follow our updates here or on our Qlife Facebook page.

QLife understands our communities have experienced a range of personal and social trauma. However, QLife Peer Supporters and staff have the right to work in a safe workplace free from homophobia, transphobia and threats of harm. Phone calls or webchats to QLife that contain abusive, aggressive, or threatening language will be terminated.

QLife provides anonymous and free LGBTI peer support and referral for people in Australia wanting to talk about sexuality, identity, gender, bodies, feelings or relationships.

“I see myself in these struggles, of Aboriginal people, of women. I think it’s helpful to see yourself in the struggles of others. You know you’re not alone in it. The same but different struggles. The point is to understand the history of what it means to come from that marginalised, that hated, that demeaned place.”

Acknowledgement of Country
QLife acknowledges the Traditional Owners of country throughout Australia, their diversity, histories and knowledge and their continuing connection to lands, waters and communities. We pay our respects to all Australian Indigenous peoples and their cultures, and to Elders of past, present and future generations.

Acknowledgement of our Elders
We pay our respects to those amongst the lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and intersex communities who have worked to support the improved health and wellbeing of their peers, children, families, friends, and country. We honour the elders in the diverse communities of which we are a part and we celebrate the extraordinary diversity of people’s bodies, genders, sexualities, and relationships that they represent.
