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

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


I feel so well supported in my role here and I never feel I have to go looking for that support.
