Are you interested in volunteering your time to offer support and social contact to an older LGBT person? The LGBT Age project is recruiting new volunteer befrienders! We are looking for people who are reliable, committed and have a couple of hours to spare each week. Ideally you’ll have a positive outlook, be friendly and encouraging and have an interest in people. The LGBT Age befriending service offers support to LGBT people aged 50 and over who are feeling isolated and hoping to build up their confidence and connections. As a befriender you’ll meet with an older LGBT person once a week for 1-2 hours, full training will be provided and a PVG check is required. If this sounds like the volunteer role for you then please get in touch!
“I don’t want to have to go back in the closet if I need support”
