There is more than one way to volunteer!

Monday, March 14, 2016 - 11:45

Volunteering can present itself in a variety of ways, it’s not always about giving heaps of your time and money! Many of our Members really need people with a variety of skills and experience who can become Trustees.

Being a Trustee for a grass roots group can be a great way to support the LGBT Sector and it's not the stereotypical bunch of dusty rich dudes sat around signing forms.

Being a trustees is about being part of diverse and dedicated team who help steer, grow and inspire their organisations. 

"I wasn’t sure that I had anything to offer in terms of skills, but my experience of writing press relseases has been invaluable to the small group I am a Trustee for!" Alan 

Members can access information on becoming and recruiting Trustees in our Members Resources and there is some great information around for people who are considering becoming a Trustee, these should get you started...

If you feel that you have something to offer why not get in touch and let us help you find your perfect Trustee match. Alternatively you can check out the current opportunities with our Members here. There are opportunities all over the UK and with a variety of groups and one of them could be your next challange!   

"Not only has being a Trustee given me the opportunity to give back to my local LGBT group, it's also helped me develop my own skills and to gain board expereince that I would never have gotten this early in my career"  - Victor 

 "I actually became a Trustee with my local LGBT charity because I moaned about an event I went to! Now I am proactive in making the events we run better (rather than moaning about them!) and I love it!"  Gemma
