Our services rely on volunteers. We are keen to hear from people up for the challenges and benefits that volunteering can bring.
Peer-based volunteering is particularly important in LGBTIQ+ communities. Volunteering gives people the opportunity to support their communities. And allows LGBTIQ+ folks to receive support from people who have similar experiences.
QLife is Australia’s first nation-wide peer support and referral service for LGBTIQ+ people. QLife is led by LGBTIQ+ Health Australia in collaboration with state-based LGBTIQ+ organisations.
Becoming a QLife Peer Supporter is an intensive process. It includes attending training over 10 weekly evening sessions. It also involves being supported on shift and ongoing training and development. We hold one annual volunteer intake a year. This occurs one evening a week from the beginning of each year. Applications are due in November/December.
