Info Line volunteerVolunteers are needed to staff the phones for our Info Line and offer information and referrals to our service users. As an information volunteer, you will learn a lot about the issues affecting lesbian, gay and bisexual people and you'll receive ongoing supervision and training so you feel informed and supported.

You should have good communication skills and speak fluent English. You should be prepared to commit to a minimum of four hours every fortnight for a minimum of six months. The service opening times are Monday- Friday 9.30am to 5.30pm.

In order to carry out this vital and rewarding role, volunteers receive training, support and supervision. Download an application form or contact Louise Kelly, Information Officer, for further details. Please note we will be running our next training course for volunteers in May 2014, successful applicants will need to attend this course before they can start answering enquiries.

'It has been very giving for me to volunteer among a group of people who care and actively fight for LGB rights and equality - And I can only recommend others to do the same.' Jacob

Our volunteers are integrated alongside paid staff across the full range of our activities. We provide induction, training, support, development and hot & cold drinks.

  • Be a case study - Stonewall is increasingly asked by the media for case studies to give their stories more 'human interest' and greater appeal to readers. We also need to have people we can call on to strengthen our case about the need to tackle discrimination. If you are willing to share your experience please complete and send us a Media volunteer form.

We are fully committed to improving our volunteer policy and procedures and encourage feedback.
