Could you represent us in the community, talk to people, and change their opinions about safer sex?
Community outreach volunteers perform a number of roles engaging with people in the communities where we work. It might be you reach out and connect with people in from the Black African and Carribean communities at sports events and faith centres, or talk to people in pubs, clubs and bars, or even visit Public Sex Environments (PSE) to provide information and safer sex resources to the people who use them. You could also work with young people on campuses and community settings, encouraging them to get tested and to access our clinics.
Outreach volunteers help to promote good sexual health and raise awareness and are frontline ambassadors of THT.
I became a volunteer to build on my experience working in the community. I chose Terrence Higgins Trust Scotland because I admire the values followed by the charity: Ambitious, Honest, Independent, Different.
My favourite part of the role is attending community events. I enjoy this the most because it gives me the opportunity to raise awareness of the services that Terrence Higgins Trust Scotland offers, challenge peoples views on sexual health & HIV stigma and supply people with the tools to engage with safer sex.
