Lambeth Links are looking for volunteers to fill our remaining vacancies to help us achieve our strategic aims and get ready for our official launch in February 2021.
Established in January 2020, Lambeth Links is the forum for LGBT+ people (‘the Community’) who live, work, socialise and study in the borough.
We are seeking expressions of interest in the following roles:
- Bi Representative
- Disability Representative
- Young Persons Representative
- Events Manager
Our Representatives are a direct link to the diversity that exists within our Community and help to ensure that needs and concerns are directed to the relevant service providers from an LGBT+ perspective. It is important that groups that have not had their voices heard are raised up. We currently have representation for the BAME, Lesbian, Older and Trans people of our Community.
It is important that you are able to bring experience of being a part of the Community that you will represent. We recognise that no one experience is the same but feel it is important to have some knowledge and understanding of what issues affect those groups within our Community in Lambeth. Representatives will work closely together, with regard to intersectional approaches to the work that we do.
The Events Manager will lead in organising events throughout the year including social events and with the Board Representatives, to create specific events for their areas of focus, preferably with experience of creating and organising events in both physical venues and online platforms. Working closely with the Chair, the Events Manager will also lead in organising the official launch of Lambeth Links in February 2021. We have already begun initial conversations with Lambeth Libraries on a possible venue and also with groups and individuals who would like to be part of our launch, which will coincide with 2021’s LGBT+ History Month.
For all roles we are looking for people who ideally live, work and /or study in Lambeth so as to be able to bring knowledge of the area and contacts to the role.
If you feel you have the skills, knowledge or even just the enthusiasm to undertake any of the above roles, we’d love to hear from you. Please send an expression of interest to email@example.com saying a little about yourself and why you would like to undertake the role along with any questions that you have. We can then tell you more about us and what we want to achieve. In the meantime, you can refer to our article on Love Lambeth, here, for some immediate information about us.
We look forward to hearing from you 🙂
