OTR Volunteer Open Day

Last year we supported 2,508 young people. Our volunteers are crucial to the work we provide for young people and their emotional health and wellbeing. The expertise and commitment they each bring to the young people they support enables us to have a hugely diverse range of support available.

Our Listening Support volunteers provide advice, support and guidance to young people aged 10-25 on any issue they would like support with. We provide full training and induction to the role and ongoing supervision.

We are also recruiting for some of our other services, such as the Youth Forum and the In Care Council.  

If you’re interested in volunteering with us, join us at our Open Day on 18th January 10:00am - 12:00pm. The Open Day will give a relaxed introduction to volunteering at OTR, allow you to understand what OTR expects from you, as well as an opportunity to meet OTR staff and volunteers. Come along and see if volunteering at OTR is right for you! 😊

Seahorse: The Dad Who Gave Birth @ The Little Theatre

Freddy is 30 and yearns to start a family but for him this ordinary desire comes with unique challenges. He is a gay transgender man. 
Deciding to carry his own baby took years of soul searching, but nothing could prepare him for the reality of pregnancy, as both a physical experience and one that challenges society's fundamental understanding of gender, parenthood and family. He quickly realises that what to him feels pragmatic, to others feels deeply confusing and confronting; this was not part of his plan.
Against a backdrop of increasing hostility towards trans people the world over, Freddy is forced to confront his own naivety, mine unknown depths of courage and lean on every friend and family member who will stand by him.

Made with unprecedented access and collaboration over three years, the film follows Freddy from preparing to conceive right through to birth. It is an intimate, audacious and lyrical story for the cinema about conception, pregnancy, birth and what makes us who we are.

The event on Facebook is:  https://www.facebook.com/events/936236000054389/
