Here at LGBT Health we have a strong commitment to providing LGBTQI people, and those committed to equality and human rights, with opportunities to volunteer within an organisation that represents their interests and concerns. As a volunteer you can become involved in the organisation’s work in a myriad of ways, including in the development and delivery of social events, befriending, drop-ins, LGBT Age champions, project support and publicity, as well as on the Board of Directors. This is a fantastic way for you to gain new experiences and skills, meet new people, and support the local LGBTQI community.
We provide a regular rolling programme of induction and ongoing training for all volunteers.
