My role as a volunteer involves taking telephone calls from the general public.  In one shift I can be required to deal with a wide variety of calls, from a teenager who thinks he might be gay, to someone wanting to know about STIs, to an enquiry about a gay walking group in Dorset!  Some calls are very straightforward while others can be quite upsetting.  My role is to listen and help the caller whilst being non-judgemental and non-directive.I can also occasionally be found in Soho bars rattling a bucket to raise funds for the charity, which relies largely on donations for it’s funding.- Which came first?Market research, which I have been doing since I left University.
