As part of the role it would be expected that you ensure a rota of cover using existing volunteers as well as recruited and trained new volunteers as required in order to meet the needs of the service.

Our Outcrowd groups provide safe social space for people in the LGBT communities to come together, socialise, meet people for the first time in a relaxed setting, with volunteers on hand to facilitate introductions and ensure that people feel welcome and included when attending the group.

Approximately 4 hours of initial training on the awareness of key issues and skills required. a workbook and policies support your backround reading. Alongside this you will use your life skills and pickup tips from experienced volunteers and your mentor.
