Switchboard Victoria Inc is a community based not for profit organisation. Switchboard provides peer-driven support services for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and gender diverse, intersex, queer and asexual (LGBTIQA+) people, their families, allies and communities.
Switchboard’s Out & About program is a free service connecting older LGBTI Victorians. Out & About aims to alleviate social isolation and loneliness experienced by LGBTI older people accessing aged care services. Out & About is Victoria’s only LGBTI specific CVS service and is funded by the national Community Visitors Scheme (CVS) and recently the RACV Community Foundation, in addition to other private donations.
The aim of this role is to support the Out & About program grow through supporting current and future clients, planning and delivering occasional accessible events for older LGBTI people, and improving program communications. This work will be undertaken in collaboration with the Out & About team, including the Program Manager and Outreach Officer.
