Volunteer Training

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 OCN London.

We welcome women from all diverse backgrounds and experiences. We particularly welcome applications from women from black and minority ethnic communities. This post is restricted to female applicants only under Schedule 9, part 1, Equalities Act 2010

Volunteers are the beating heart of our organisation

Volunteers deliver our helpline and email support services, contribute to decision-making, support our activism, help our campaigning, promote our publicity and fundraise for us.


The initial volunteer training was an excellent experience. Very well done. I felt supported and encouraged to expand my ideas.

It has been lovely meeting all the women in the group and getting to learn together through the training.

Volunteer 1

Hugely value working with DRCSAS, feel so proud to be part of it. An amazing organisation, love working with all the staff, volunteers and service users.


I love being part of DRCSAS and feel proud of what we achieve. This is because of the support of the whole team and the cohesion of the organisation despite changes in our services and staff changes. The issues can be overwhelming but just being able to help SUs one at a time feels powerful


DRCSAS is amazing in so many ways and I feel volunteering here has really changed my life, and continues to be somewhere I often feel safe, valued and empowered, which I often don’t feel in many other areas of my life <3


I feel a valued member of the organisation
