Volunteer roles play an important part in what we do at the Brunswick Centre. Volunteering is an excellent opportunity to give something back, gain experience and build your CV.
We offer a variety of volunteering roles right across the charity including:
- Trustee roles
- Admin and office support roles
- Condom packing
- HIV prevention outreach
- Information stalls at community events
- Group work including assisting at our LGBT youth group, supporting or trans young people & parents’ group and/or helping out at children and family’s group
We offer training and ongoing support and we will pay out of pocket expenses.
We welcome volunteering from organisations too and have welcomed colleagues from Kirklees Council’s Young Employee’s Network and groups of young people from the National Citizens Service.
If your employer allows you or your colleagues time to give back to the community, we may be able to offer you opportunities so please get in touch.
"Volunteering at the Brunswick Centre is great. It is a fun and friendly place where I feel valued and part of the team." John Young - HIV Prevention Volunteer
We are currently looking for new people to join our board of Trustees. Whilst everyone is welcome to apply, we are currently under-represented by women and people from BME communities
Being a Trustee is an opportunity to contribute to the direction and strategic development of a local charity, working across Kirklees and Calderdale to support people living with HIV, as well as the provision of wellbeing services. We also support LGBT young people through the yOUTh service.
We are looking for individuals with skills/experience in all aspects of running a charity, but training will be given where appropriate.
Board meetings are held bi-monthly, with the option of using Skype to participate in meetings. Expenses are reimbursed and the minimum commitment is 4 board meetings per year.
