To be one of our Support Volunteers ask yourself the following questions:
- Do you want to give something back to the LGBT+ communities?
- Do you have a specialised skill – for example Training, PR, Marketing, Legal or IT?
- Are you able to make a regular commitment to Switchboard?
If the answer to these is ‘yes’, then we would love to hear from you.
Being a Support Volunteer is just as important and valuable as being a Listening Volunteer. In order to keep answering calls, Switchboard needs to run efficiently and effectively. Perhaps you have a technical skill, or corporate experience, or have recently been on a course for professional development – and can apply some of those skills and experience to the successful running of Switchboard, now and for the future.
