Volunteers Week

Tuesday, June 5, 2018 - 09:30

Did you know that over 70% of LGBT Consortium Members are volunteer led and that most of them deliver their vital services and support on an income of under £10,000 a year? 

For the month of June, to coincide with National Volunteer week 2018, we have bundled all our Volunteer based resources together so that you can find everything you need to get your groups volunteering on track. 

We are calling all organisations and groups to share their stories about why volunteering is important to them. Tag us on Facebook and Twitter and use the #Volunteer4LGBT to share your story.

That’s not all! We are also hosting two webinars.
