Support for LGBTQIA+ people

Do you need someone to talk to about your sexual orientation or gender?

Are you next of kin of an LGBTQIA+ person? Do you need support in your life situation?

Do you feel you’re alone with your questions regarding sexuality or gender?

A support person can help you in these situations. This service, organized by Oulun Seta, is intended for people of any age and from any background. Our support persons are adult volunteers who have received training and provide peer support through informal conversation.

In order to get in contact with a support person, contact us and tell us what kind of support you need. We’ll do our best to match you with a suitable support person as soon as possible. Together you and the support person will decide which is the best way for you to keep in touch – email, phone, or face-to-face meetings. Also, if you start to feel that you need more help in your problems, we will direct you to an appropriate service provider.

You don’t have to be alone with your thoughts. Contact us by email: tukihenkilot[at]
