Regular Volunteering Roles

Are you passionate about supporting LGBT communities? Do you want to help LGBT Foundation create a fair and equal society where all lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people are able to reach their full potential? At LGBT Foundation we are happy to start recruitment again for volunteers to join our team as we continue to make a difference during the Coronavirus pandemic.

We have a very simple motto - we’re here if you need us. And that applies to everyone in our beautifully diverse communities. If you’re young, we’re here for you; if you’re older, we’re here for you; if you’re a person of colour, we’re here for you; if you’re a man, a woman, or non-binary, we’re here for you; lesbian, gay, bi, trans - however you describe yourself - we’re here for you. If you need help, if you’re struggling, if you need a friendly face or reassuring voice, we are there for you if you need us. We are all family - and at LGBT Foundation, everyone is welcome.

Below you can find information on the programmes recruiting at the moment, the role profiles for the various different volunteering roles and how to apply.

Indigo Gender Service – Voice and Communication Therapy

We involve student and qualified speech and language therapists as well as former service users in our service delivery. There are two volunteering roles, both of which play an important role in supporting service users to explore voice and communication change in a safe space.

You will help service users to develop a voice and communication style that is authentic to them and congruent with their sense of self. The Voice and Communication Therapy Volunteer role is open to student and qualified speech and language therapists only. The Self-Help Group Facilitator role is only open to Indigo Gender Service service users who have completed their voice therapy with us.
