Volunteer Opportunities

 

We are recruiting for Online Support Workers and Peer Mentors to join our team of LGBTQ volunteers.

Our Online Support service offers one-to-one support and information for people all around the UK, and sometimes from around the world. We are open most evenings from around 5:30pm, and offer weekly trans, advocacy and under 30s sessions.

Our Peer Mentoring service offers people the opportunity to be matched with a mentor who will be able to support them with something difficult they are facing. This might be getting out and socialising a bit more, or going through a difficult time, or something else. Peer Mentors offer one-to-one support and can help reduce isolation and loneliness.

Full training and supervision will be offered for both roles.

We particularly welcome applications from people over the age of 50, those who identify as trans and non-binary, and people of colour, as these groups are currently underrepresented in our volunteer team.

 

Online Support Workers

We are currently looking for new volunteers to join our evening and weekend Online Support service.

You will be supporting people one-to-one online with a wide variety of issues relating to mental health, sexuality, gender identity, relationships and isolation.

Volunteers will normally work in pairs to support each other when talking to contacts.

Regular supervision and team meetings, as well as full training, is provided.

 

Peer Mentors

We are currently looking for new volunteers to be Peer Mentors and join our Peer Mentoring Service.

We are looking for volunteers who identify as LGBTQ, have lived experience of mental health, and who would like the opportunity to receive training to become a mentor.

Regular one-to-one and team support and supervision is available, and you would be expected to attend team meetings.

You will need to be able to commit to the role for at least six months.
