Contact Person

As a contact person you are a resource for an LGBTQ person and your work is tailored to what this person needs. It can be about being a moral support in the contact with authorities, conversations, learning more about Göteborg and/or Sweden, getting out and doing things, to get a way into the LGBTQ community or similar.

Being a contact person is a non-profit commitment and we expect you to be able to do about three hours of work per week as well as attend the group counselling sessions one night about every fifth week. Before you start the work you need to do a training course held by RFSL Göteborg.

We are looking for you who are stable, who likes meeting new people and are interested in both sharing your life and take part in others’.

A contact person assignment can be about being an extra support for an LGBTQ person who is new to the community, an LGBTQ person who feels lost, an LGBTQ person who is new in Sweden or an LGBTQ person who needs an extra person to talk to.

A contact person can be described as a confident professional friend and the work is tailored to the needs of the person whose contact person you are. You who want to become a contact person should define yourself as an LGBTQ person and be a part of Göteborg’s LGBTQ community.

All contact person assignments within RFSL Göteborg are made without financial compensation.

The next training course will be held in the fall of 2018. You declare your interest in becoming a contact person by filling out and sending in this form. If you have any questions you’re welcome to send them to kurator@goteborg.rfsl.se. Interviews will be held in September/October.
