Volunteer LGBTQIA+ Group Facilitator

After running an extensive survey, we are creating a group to respond to the needs of our LGBTQIA+ service users who do not have a specific outlet to discuss and share particular issues that may be affecting their lives. Our aim is to create a peer-led, welcoming, and accessible group for our service users in Portsmouth, so we are looking for volunteers to help in supporting and developing this project.
Commitment Required: TBA - 4 hours every 2 weeks, evening and/or weekends, as well as time for research and outreach (negotiable).
