Diverse Voices – A helping hand

  • Diverse Voices is mainly ran and operated by volunteers
  • Diverse Voices takes around 50 calls per week
  • Calls to Diverse Voices can be anything from information & referral calls to crisis calls
  • We are the only helpline in Queensland ran by LGBTI+ people for LBGTI+ people
  • Diverse Voices has been doing this job for over 25 years
  • Diverse Voices saves lives

The problem

  1. Diverse Voices gets some limited funding as part of Q-Life but this doesn’t cover everything
  2. It costs us $7 per call on top of our funding to run the service
  3. Time spent on fundraising takes valuable resources away from our helpline.
  4. We need to fundraise in a way that doesn’t divert resources away from our important work
  5. To do this we need help from you

The solution

You could become a Diverse Voices Angel and sponsor a call


For as little as $7 per month you can help Diverse Voices carry out its work
