Volunteer with LGBT Foundation


Thanks very much for your interest in volunteering with us!

Due to staff transitions in the Volunteer Programme, we have had to put a temporary hold on volunteer applications, and so are unable to process new applications at this time.

Please do keep an eye on our volunteering opportunities page, though, and if you haven’t signed up for our e-bulletin, you can register for it at lgbt.foundation/register. This will give you weekly updates about news and events, and also about any new volunteering opportunities with LGBT Foundation.


We have a huge variety of volunteer roles for you to choose from. Find out more about current volunteering opportunities.

You can help us by fundraising for us, have a look at our fundraising information to find out more.

We also have lots of ways you can volunteer for short-term or one-off events. Check out the section on short-term volunteer opportunities.

There are so many benefits to volunteering, both for you personally and to your local community. Read more about this and about our volunteers' experiences here.

You can also take a look at the short video above to see more about volunteering with the LGF!

We hope you enjoy finding out more about volunteering, and hope to hear from you very soon.
