Personal Details and Demographics

Why are we asking this information?

It is important for us to us know that people from all backgrounds and communities feel comfortable coming into LGBT Foundation and/or volunteering with us. It is also often a condition of our funding that we monitor the demographics of our staff, volunteers and service users. However, all of the questions remain optional and if you choose not to answer any this will not affect your volunteering.

We welcome volunteer applications from everyone irrespective of sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity, faith and religion, disability and age, but as women, ethnic minority groups, members of the trans community and religious and faith groups are currently under-represented among our volunteers, we would encourage applications from members of these groups.

PLEASE NOTE we are unable to process applications unless all fields are complete.
