Being a Volunteer:
Our volunteers are spread across the Highlands of Scotland, covering an area spanning just under ten thousand square miles. 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.
Join the Committee
Highland Pride SCIO is run by small team of volunteers and we need your help:
- Do you want to see a Summer Pride event in 2023?
- Are you passionate about raising awareness and visibility for our LGBTQ+ community right here in the Highlands?
- Do you have some time to spare in the evenings and weekends?
If you’d like to join us as a committee member, please read our guidelines below:
- Committee members are also trustees of the charity.
- Paragraphs 16, 16.1 and 16.2 of our constitution, available here, discusses charity trustee eligibility.
- Further details on the role of trustees are available on the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) website.
All we ask is that you’re able to commit to attending regular meetings and have time to contribute every month (this could range from a few hours a month to a few hours a week at the busiest times). Most of our meetings are online, so you can join from anywhere in the region.
