Allsorts Youth Project relies on the support & commitment of our community volunteers in order to offer our services.
Our volunteers all self-identify as LGBTU and come from a wide range of backgrounds, giving the young people who use our services a huge, diverse group of LGBTU role models.
"I enjoy helping out knowing that the young people have diverse role models and people they can trust and will understand what they going through."
Our volunteers help the staff to run the supportive space for young people. At our groups young people can access information and support, meet other LGBTU people and take part in a range of activities designed to promote their well-being.
The Allsorts volunteers are a friendly & helpful bunch who try and meet up outside of drop in a couple of times a year. We also have our own (closed) Facebook group where we post information about our groups, what you might be expected to cook that evening & any other information that might be interesting to you as volunteers.
"I can honestly say that being a community volunteer is one of the best things I’ve done, in terms of both being involved in the LGBTU community and also on a more personal level."
"The problems young people face are much the same I faced in the 80’s. Volunteering can be very rewarding if anyone reading this is thinking about giving it a go."
"The staff team and other volunteers are really supportive, I'd recommend the opportunity to be a part of Allsorts to anyone wanting to volunteer."
"On a personal level, there’s no better reward than seeing the young people get involved in activities, build new friendships and feel free to explore their sexuality and/or gender identity, within a supportive, non-judgmental and safe environment."
