Be an LGB Community Leader
The LGF have begun a new project to recruit, train and empower a group of lesbian,gay and bisexual volunteers to ensure that the health and care needs LGB people are recognised through facilitating interaction between seldom heard LGB voices and NHS organisations.
To tell people more about the project we are hosting an information event on Wednesday 22nd May, 6pm-8pm at The LGF.
If you would like to attend or would like more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re looking for long term Groupwork volunteers!
The LGF’s support and social groups provide safe, non judgemental and positive environments for lesbian, gay, bisexual or questioning people to meet, talk, share, interact and socialise.
Each group has a specific unique aim, and, through structured and well planned facilitation from volunteers, group members gain the support and encouragement they need to be confident and feel less isolated.
All groups provide an opportunity to meet others and build friendships, as well as support networks beyond the group.
With this in mind, we are now looking for a small team of volunteers to help plan and facilitate our groups. Working with existing volunteers, you will ideally have experience in group facilitation, as well as having a good understanding of the barriers that LGB people may experience.
You will be working in a small team dedicated to one group, and will be taking part in planning, as well as facilitating group sessions and ensuring appropriate monitoring is taking place.
All groups happen twice a month in the evening, and you will also be expected to attend planning meetings with fellow volunteers as well as supervision meetings bi monthly.
Being a groupwork volunteer is a rewarding and fun role, and you will have the unique opportunity to support a wide range of people, and provide them with a positive environment, for which to improve their wellbeing, as well as being part of a team of enthusiastic volunteers.
Full training is given, and we also provide expenses too.
For more information, details of specific groups and an application form, please email email@example.com or phone 0845 3 30 30 30.
