Volunteering for ODL can be a life-enhancing experience.
We currently have over 280 volunteers from a wide variety of backgrounds and ages who support us in our work. They help us run our various groups and social activities for LGBT+ people over 50, and vitally, our befriending service, for the most isolated in our community. We couldn’t do the work we do without the commitment, enthusiasm, skills and brilliance that our volunteers bring to their roles.
Equally, we recognise that people have to benefit from their volunteering with us. Our volunteers have said that they:
• enjoy the inter-generational aspects of volunteering with us
• enjoy developing their understanding of issues affecting people from different sections of the LGBT+ community
• felt a different and more positive engagement with their communities as a result of volunteering with ODL
They also report a great deal of satisfaction in being able to make a difference to the lives of LGBT+ people over 50.
