LGBT Foundation is part of the Positive about Disabled People Scheme and is an Investors in People accredited organisation. We welcome applications from everyone irrespective of sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity, faith and religion, disability and age, but, as ethnic minority groups, members of the trans community and religious and faith groups are currently under-represented across the organisation, we would encourage applications from members of these groups. Appointment will be based on merit alone.

Rampton Sessional Worker

We are looking for a sessional worker to support with the planning and delivery of our social support groups at Rampton Secure Hospital

The groups act as a safe ‘neutral’ space for patients who identify as LGBT or questioning (and their allies) to meet others and share experiences and support. The main focus is social interaction and learning through discussion, debate and a range of activities including crafts, art and quizzes.

Our Rampton Sessional Workers plan each of the sessions in advance and facilitate a monthly group with support from volunteers. We are currently looking for a sessional worker to specifically work within our ‘Female Friends’ group. The group is a relaxed social group for lesbian, bisexual and trans women and their allies
