LEAP Sports is looking for a new team member to develop and run a service for gender diverse children and their families. The service will develop a programme of regular activities offering physical activity opportunities for children, and information, peer support and networking for families.
We are looking for a new team member to lead on a portfolio of small projects designed to engage LGBTIQ+ young people in physical activity and sport, and to work with a range of partners to improve relevant services and opportunities for LGBTIQ+ young people.
The job will initially be home based, but a future blend of remote, office based (Glasgow) and on location work is envisaged.
We are looking for a new Project Officer who will lead the OUT and About in the Highlands project. The project aims to increase LGBTIQ+ people’s engagement with sport and physical activity, improve mental wellbeing and develop social connectedness.
The Project Officer will work with a range of partners to improve relevant services and opportunities for LGBTIQ+ people, and will work directly with colleagues from University of Highlands and Islands (UHI) who will guide and support the learning of the project and ensure the work is informed by existing research in mental wellbeing and physical activity.
