Planned Parenthood NL’s 2SLGBTQIA+ Warm Line is a peer support service run by and for 2SLGBTQIA+ people in Newfoundland and Labrador. If you need someone to talk to, call us and we will do our best to support you and provide you resources.

The goals of the Warm Line are as follows:
– Create a safer space for 2SLGBTQIA+ people in NL to talk through their problems/concerns.
– Take pressure off of existing crisis or warmlines that 2SLGBTQIA+ people may be using in the absence of specific warm line
– Connect those in the 2SLGBTQIA+ community with more experience and more to give with those seeking help or someone to talk to.
Launched in 2020 amid the Covid-19 pandemic and heightened social isolation, the warm line endeavours to create a sense of connection, community, and hope for its callers.
