As a Volunteer Ambassador, you'll support our work by fundraising with your friends, colleagues, family, local LGBT+ venues, networks and businesses.

This is a vital role as it helps us to reach new supporters and, if you're unable to fundraise, you can still help by giving us your time or inspiring others to support our work .

  • Organising a fundraising event
  • Holding a bucket collection at a local supermarket, theatre or train station.

  • Helping at a cheering station at an event such as the TCS London Marathon.
  • Inspiring others like your local LGBT+ venue, networks and businesses to fundraise and support our work.
  • Sharing details of our work on your social media.
  • Introducing us to new supporters such as your employer or social group.
  • Attending an event and giving a short thank you talk about our work or thanking our supporters face to face.
