Next week from 1st June 7th is national volunteers week so what a perfect opportunity to offer your support to our organisation.
There are many reasons why volunteering is such a good thing to do:
- Learn or develop a new skill
- Be part of your community
- Motivation and sense of achievement
- Boost career options
- Discover new interests and hobbies
- New experiences
- Meet a diverse range of new people, form new friendships
- Inspire others
Men's Sexual Health are involved in a variety of different areas of work, and should be able to find something to suite any kind of volunteer, whether it's engaging with the public at an event, or something more introverted in your own space, we hope to match what you are looking to do, the following is an example of some of the tasks that we need volunteers for:
- Condom Packing
- Fresher Fairs
- Swindon & Wiltshire Pride
- Health Fairs
- Writing articles for the website
- General Admin work
- Outreach at Gay Venues
- GUM Buddy Scheme
Anyone can offer to volunteer, but it would be beneficial considering the line of work we do to be open minded, possibly understand some of the issues the LGBT community face, and some knowledge of sexual and general health would be helpful but not essential. Please note, due to the change in funding, the majority of public events will take place in Swindon, this does not mean you have to live in Swindon, but just to be made aware.
If you would like to volunteer, please download a form and post it back to us where we will be in touch to offer you an interview.
