There are lots of ways you can support ZGBTST. We are a charity and we couldn’t continue to support vulnerable members of the community without your help.
ZGBTST is a community lead, based and focus organisation. We welcome volunteers from all backgrounds for the following roles:
Front of House (FOH)
In anticipation of our new premises opening in Coleraine, ZGBTST is actively recruiting front of house volunteers to assist with the day to day running of ZGBTST.
We currently have availability for 9am – 12pm and 12pm – 5pm slots in which you will meet and greet clients, answer the office phone and provide drop in clients with the relevant ZGBTST information.
This is a great opportunity for anyone wishing to gain experience and/or wishing to contribute towards helping their community.
We facilitate a number of youth events and particularly advocate for this during mental health week. We offer mentoring for youth who can then support their peers. Mentors will be provided with ZGBTST information along with help packs for parents and family of peers if they are struggling.
If you are interested in organising fundraisers in aid of ZGBTST, we ask that you attend a meeting every 2 months to discuss any events you may know of or any other ideas you may have. This role will involve approaching local people, being a voice for ZGBTST & the community, as well as keeping track of funds raised (along with renewing collection boxes etc).
Become a ZGBTST Counsellor
If you are interested in becoming a ZGBTST counsellor, we require you to be qualified to at least Diploma level from a recognised validating organisation. Prior experience working with young people and vulnerable adults would be advantageous. Our counselling sessions are held in timetabled slots with unique spaces and are no more than 4 hours per week.
