VOLUNTEERS

Support U is run through a network of trained volunteers based in our central offices in Reading.  Our volunteers come from all walks of life, with one thing in common, we all identify as or ally with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and/or Transgender people and want to give something back to our community.

Our large volunteering team work together to provide confidential listening, support and information to LGBTQ+ people and their families and friends in Reading and the Thames Valley.
