Our Trustees &
Since its inception in 1989 GayGlos has been a volunteer conceived and volunteer led and run organisation. A Board of trustees oversees the running of the charity; some are actively involved in the delivering of our services. The Board meets on a quarterly basis to review activity and forward direction, as well as to manage the financial running and access future funding. We also have a team of volunteers that help us in the running of our services.
We identify as Gay or Lesbian and have been involved in organisations and
campaigns relevant to LGBTQ+ people for the last 30 years.
We have worked in the Civil Service, Local Government, Higher Education and the
Criminal Justice system, for private companies and been self-employed.
We have been involved with developing equality and diversity policies and support
systems in our workplaces.
Between us we have been Trustees of 3 other charities and worked with voluntary
and statutory bodies covering a wide range of issues and services (including health,
homelessness, young carers, environmental issues).
Our hands-on experience of volunteering (other than with GayGlos and its pre-
cursor, Gloucestershire Friend) also includes 25 years with the Scout Association.
Want to be a Trustee?
We're seeking two new Trustees, to work closely with the Chair, other Board members and volunteers to ensure that it is working in an effective and efficient way and meeting its objectives.
