Get Involved

OutdoorLads is run mostly by a huge team of volunteers, with support provided by three members of paid staff. If you want to give something back to the charity, and help more of the gay, bi and trans community #GetOutMore, keep reading! 


There are almost 400 volunteer Leaders leading thousands of OutdoorLads events all over the UK. They’re what makes OutdoorLads work. We’re always looking to recruit more Leaders. Afterall, more Leaders means more events. More events means more of us can #GetOutMore! 

If you’ve been on a few events and feel inspired to lead your own, then check out the Become A Leader page for more info on what’s involved and how to apply.

Regional Coordinators and Organisers 

Regional Coordinators oversee all events in their region, supported by their Regional Organisers, who have responsibilities for specific event types. They’re the backbone of OutdoorLads, and support their Leaders in organising their events and publishing their event pages. 

There are currently no Coordinator or Organiser vacancies.

You can see all Coordinators and Organisers on Meet The Team, where you can also view the regions that OutdoorLads uses.
