Volunteers needed

Our counselling and support services are provided by volunteers and we need more in order to offer our existing services to clients and to extend the services we provide. You can get an idea of the range of services we offer by browsing this website.

You can commit to offer whatever amount of time is convenient for you. A day a week, half a day a week, or a few hours here and there is all helpful. Our office is based in central Norwich, and this is where most of the clients attend. We also provide counselling and support services in Great Yarmouth and Thetford.

We are looking for men and women who are non-judgemental, who have respect and understanding, and demonstrate integrity for their fellow human beings. You must be comfortable working with men who have been physically and/or sexually abused. Above all, you must be able to listen with respect for your client.

We need support workers to assist in supporting clients, staffing the helpline, for answering emails and for assisting with the running of the operation.

You do not need any special qualifications or experience to be a support worker as we will provide extensive training and ongoing assessment and development.

To be considered for the counselling work we do with our clients, you must be qualified to at least Diploma level in counselling or be studying towards such a qualification and seeking a placement. Specialist training will also be provided for new counsellors. This is a 5-day intensive course and is mandatory for all new volunteers. You would not be able to start working with our clients until you have undertaken this training.

The course runs twice a year, in Spring and in Autumn, and takes place on Saturdays at our office in Norwich. The next training course starts on 6 April 2013.

If you are interested, or think that you may be and would like to talk it over with us, please contact us either by email or during normal office hours on 01603 622406
