What we look for in our volunteers:
- We welcome volunteers over the age of 18 from a range of backgrounds, particularly those who have experience of DA
- We value the skills gained caring for a family as well as through employment and other voluntary work.

- You must be reliable and have good listening skills.
- We ask for a commitment of at least six months
- You will need to support in an understanding and non-judgmental way.
- Availability during office hours.
We welcome support and involvement of men, however, are unable to offer volunteer opportunities that involve direct 1-1 female contact, subject to section 7(2)(e) of the sex discrimination act (women only).
Alternatively, we are looking to extend and enhance our volunteer team by recruiting a group of people with passion and energy who would like to be involved, but for various reasons, cannot volunteer on a regular basis. This group would be called on for support on an ad-hoc basis for example:
- Help with community fundraising and domestic abuse awareness events.
- Writing bids to potential funders.
- Knowledge of another language, help with translation in appointments etc.
What we can offer if you volunteer with the service:
- Ongoing training, giving you opportunity to gain new skills.
- Regular 1-1 support.
- Opportunity to increase self confidence and enhance future employment prospects.
- Chance to meet new people and to get involved and help tackle issues in the local community.
- Out of pocket expenses reimbursed.
Volunteers are accepted following interview, satisfactory references and a DBS check (depending on the role) and completion of an assessed induction training where necessary.
