Want to be an Allsorts Volunteer?

Allsorts Youth Project relies on the support & commitment of our community volunteers in order to offer our services.

We are currently recruiting for LGBT volunteersto help run our NEW weekly youth groups in Horsham and Chichester, in West Sussex. 

We particularly welcome applications from BAME, trans and bi identified people, who are currently under represented in our volunteer group. 

Volunteers help Allsorts staff run a supportive spacein West Sussex for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and unsure (LGBTU) young people aged 11-19.

Could you:

  • Help the staff team to run activities at youth groups (workshops, art projects, games etc)?
  • Help the young people to get involved in activities and offer them a supportive ear?
  • Help the staff team to set up and clear up afterwards?
  • Help prepare and serve meals for the young people?

The groups will run on Thursdays, from 4pm till 8:30pm, so you’d need to be available on that day, and those times, although there is some flexibility with this, as the group is split into two sessions. 

Volunteers are normally expected to volunteer at least two evenings a month for one year, although we do understand that this isn’t always possible so there is some flexibility!

Before volunteering you will receive training (consisting of one evening and one weekend day, dates tbc), around a range of issues relating to LGBTU young people. We also offer individual supervision and travel expenses.

"I have been volunteering with Allsorts since August 2016 and have loved every minute of it so far. I love getting to know the young people that come and being able to listen to what's happening in their lives and offer support. There is lots of fun to be had too getting creative in art projects and playing games etc"
TATE

If successful the process will then be;

  • You will be required to attend a training programme before starting to attend our groups.
  • In line with our Safeguarding Policy, you must undergo a DBS check (funded by Allsorts), and complete an online safeguarding course.
"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."
