We are looking for women volunteers with passion and commitment to represent our diverse community and join our team. This is a rewarding volunteering opportunity to be part of an organisation that provides a high quality support service.
Volunteers will be working on the telephone helpline and our email support services. Volunteers can also contribute to decision-making, activism, campaigning, publicity and fundraising for our organisation. No previous experience is needed, as training is provided. The training programme runs over 6 months and it is accredited by Ascentis Awards.
