In our recent job pack for the LGBTQ PoC Development Manager post we stated:

*Note on language and acronyms. We are using the acronym LGBTQ PoC for this post as we want it to be as inclusive as possible. We acknowledge that QTIPoC and BIPoC are also used as acronyms and indicate intersections of race and LGBTQ identities. Similarly the acronym BAME (Black, Asian, minority ethnic) will denote a broad range of ethnicities not represented under the umbrella term people of colour. We would like this post to represent all LGBTQ people who would identify under all the above groups and communities.

We did not intend to imply that BAME people who are not people of colour were welcome to apply for this post, apologies that it reads as if this were the case.

Volunteer Opportunities

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

Our LGBTQ Counselling service is offering online and telephone counselling. We welcome applicants who have remote counselling skills to join our team. Please email [email protected] to enquire.

Supervision will be offered for the role.

We particularly welcome applications from people over the age of 50, those who identify as trans and non-binary, and people of colour, as these groups are currently underrepresented in our volunteer team.

Image has a pink border, and features the MindOut logo. It gives details of the volunteer vacancy, and includes details of the post. There is a paragraph of text in the centre describing what kind of experience and qualities are required for the post. Bottom of the image includes the MindOut charity number and the rainbow fund and brighton and hove city councils logos.


MindOut are recruiting both trainee and qualified volunteer counsellors to join our busy, low-cost LGBTQ Affirmative counselling service. There is currently no closing date for volunteer counsellor applications.

We need counsellors who:

  • are training on/qualified from level 7 (Post Graduate level) or above courses
  • identify as LGBTQ
  • trans and BAME LGBTQ counsellors are particularly welcome to apply
