More Information About Becoming A Committee Member:
Many people choose to volunteer with us for a variety of reasons: for some, it’s to give something back and make a difference to the people in our local LGBT+ community – for others, it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience or knowledge which can be useful for future career opportunities. Volunteering also appeals because of its social benefits, and this includes meeting new people and getting to know other LGBT+ people in the local area.
Our committee members (also known as charity trustees) and volunteers are spread across the Highlands of Scotland, covering an area spanning just under ten thousand square miles and committee members an be co-opted onto the committee throughout the year. We want to reassure prospective new committee members that our existing committee members will provide support and guidance whilst you get settled into your role on the committee!
