Description

Want to make a difference to people's lives? We are looking for dedicated, enthusiastic and empathetic volunteers to respond to e-mails from victims of stalking and harassment.

We offer all our volunteers comprehensive training in issues which surround stalking and harassment such as: stalking legislation and other relevant laws, civil and legal measures clients can take, domestic violence and its effects and stalker typologies. We believe supporting volunteers is crucial to them getting the most out of the experience and so we always aim to make our volunteers feel very much part of the team. We offer in depth support whilst volunteers are learning, debriefing at the end of every shift, one-to-one support as well as continued training opportunities.

All our volunteers tell us that they find the experience very rewarding as they know that they are playing an active role in helping people. This is a great opportunity for anyone looking for hands on experience in supporting people, law, delivering advice, the VAWG sector, counselling and the charity sector. The National Stalking Helpline will also cover travel (up to £15) and lunch expenses.

This is a great opportunity to gain invaluable experience in the charity sector and an office setting, learning many transferable and valuable skills.

This opportunity will assist you in gaining the following skills:

  • Interpersonal/Confidence
  • Teamwork
  • Planning/Organising

Training will be provided by the organisation for this position:

Volunteers will receive thorough training in providing support, around criminal and civil legislation relating to harassment and stalking, stalker typologies, personal safety and helpline policies and procedures.

We are passionate about ensuring our volunteers are well supported. Volunteers will work alongside a Helpline Advisor every shift for support and debriefing purposes, and have one-to-ones with the Volunteer Coordinator as well.
