Applications welcome to join our team of LGBTQ volunteers for our Counselling service.

Our LGBTQ Counselling service is offering online and telephone counselling, so volunteers will ideally be trained and/or experienced in these ways of working. We do prioritise applicants who are Sussex-based and are also available for face-to-face sessions. Ideally you will offer both methods of delivery.

See here for more information.

Supervision will be offered for the role.

We are continually striving to diversify our counselling team and are keen to hear from BAME and trans counsellors who would like to volunteer with us. We're particularly keen to hear from qualified counsellors who wish to volunteer, though we do offer trainee placements to any LGBTQ counselling trainees.
