Volunteer with us

Volunteering is incredibly important to our organisations and how we work. We have a variety of volunteering opportunities within the organisations that make up LGBT NI. Volunteers bring vital skills, experience, diversity and character to our organisations and we do our best to ensure that we can provide opportunities for volunteers. We actively seek to promote, support and involve volunteers in all aspects of our work.

If you are interested in volunteering with any LGBT organisation then please browse the volunteering opportunities below.  If however, we currently have no opportunities listed or you feel you have skills and experience you would like to contribute that we have not identified please feel free to send an email to james@rainbow-project.org with a short message on what you would like to do and together with the volunteer coordination scheme we may be able to work something out!
