Opening Doors London is the country’s largest specialist provider of services and support for LGBT+ people over 50. We are currently seeking two people to fill vacancies on our Board of Trustees, which is responsible for the overall direction and strategy of the organisation.
We welcome applications from people with BAME/PoC, trans and nonbinary and differently abled backgrounds and lived experience. We also welcome applications from people with experience in the small charity and LGBTQI+ community sector.
There are over 3 million lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans+ people in Britain – and over 100,000 older LGBT+ in London alone. Unfortunately, the experience of older LGBT+ people receiving services and support is not always a positive one. We aim to change that. With a membership of over 2000, we provide regular social groups and opportunities, we have a Befriending Service, we campaign for and give a voice to older LGBT+ people and we provide training support to mainstream services. Our services are either delivered directly by ODL or in partnership with local community groups throughout London.
For further details about the vacancy, please download an application pack from our website: www.openingdoorslondon.org.uk/Pages/Category/volunteer or send an email to: email@example.com
Deadline for applications: 9am on Monday 5th October
Interviews will be held on Zoom; make sure you have a stable internet connection.
