Outreach Volunteer - Suffolk
Suffolk's Health Promotion team at Terrence Higgins Trust are looking to fill a number of outreach volunteer roles to help with their essential work to raise awareness about good sexual health and help signpost and enable access to services regarding HIV and Sexual Health.
You may support at community events, at LGBT+ venues, Public Sex Environments (PSE) or any other local events. If you have 2-4 hours per week to help out, please do consider applying to join our volunteer outreach team.
Terrence Higgins Trust was set up in 1982 following the death of its namesake, Terry Higgins, who was one of the very first people to die of an AIDS-related illness in the UK. As an organisation we are always aiming to ensure we are always meeting the needs of people affected by HIV and poor sexual health.
Volunteering at Terrence Higgins Trust
Today, volunteers continue to be a huge and integral part of the work that we do across the UK. Volunteers help out in most teams within the charity and many services could not be provided without their help. In 2019 alone, volunteers gave the charity over 26,500 hours of their time.
Help us build our vision of a world where people with HIV live healthy lives free from prejudice and discrimination, and good sexual health is a right and reality for all.
Anyone aged from 18 can volunteer with us as long as they fulfil the role description and meet the volunteer requirements.
If you are successful in your application you will need to complete a volunteer induction and GDPR course. You may also need to attend role specific training and a safeguarding webinar, depending on your role. You must complete your training before you can begin volunteering with us.
If you are unsuccessful in your application you can discuss other volunteering opportunities with the Volunteer Office.
Some volunteer roles may have rolling recruitment. If we receive sufficient applications we reserve the right to close recruitment early. We therefore advise you to apply for any roles you are interested in as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
At Terrence Higgins Trust we know that equity, diversity and inclusion are critical to the work we do. We are striving to be an anti-racist, anti-sexist organisation and are committed to having a workforce with people from different backgrounds. It is the responsibility of each one of us in the Charity to create an environment of inclusion and belonging within the organisation. Our work has to be internal first so that it can impact on all that we do for all the communities who use our services.
