Could you help us by giving a little of your precious time

Are you interested in supporting Breakout with your time?  If so, we have volunteering opportunities available.

Group volunteers

You could be a volunteer in one (or more) of our groups.  Our volunteers have a vast range of experiences and knowledge that they bring to Breakout Youth, which is invaluable.  Our volunteers help with the running of the groups – taking lead in activities or offering a young person a listening ear and some support and advice.  Volunteers do not have to identify LGBTQ+; they just have to have an understanding of and empathy towards LGBTQ+ issues.  As a Breakout volunteer, you will be given initial training and then offered ongoing training throughout your time with Breakout Youth.  All volunteers are subject to a full DBS check.  If you are interested in volunteering, please ask for an application pack on our ‘contacts’ page.

Voluntary Trusteeship

Another way to support Breakout Youth could be as part of our Board of Trustees.  Our volunteer trustees come from a wide variety of backgrounds and each bring something to the table – as well as their passion for the work Breakout does. Trustees meet every 8 weeks and have regular contact with the other staff and volunteers. Please get in touch to find out more or send us an email to
