Rampton High Security Psychiatric Hospital Volunteer

The LGBT Foundation has been holding 2 x monthly groups at Rampton High Secure Psychiatric Hospital for more than ten years. The groups act as a safe ‘neutral’ space for patients who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or trans (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.

The volunteer role is to support the sessional workers who facilitate and deliver the groups; by interacting with patients and helping to set up and clear away. Although no specific qualifications are required for this role, previous experience of working or volunteering with service users, ideally within a mental health setting is essential.

The volunteer will be required to attend the Rampton visit every month, which is usually on the third Thursday of the month, between 1pm and 10.30pm (lunch and expenses will be provided on the day). Transport will be provided.
