Advocacy Counselling Helpline


Service Delivery Volunteers and Service Support Volunteers

Our Service Delivery Volunteers for Helpline are recruited and trained in cohorts. Experienced and qualified Counsellors are invited to contact us to volunteer in our Counselling service. Our Service Support Volunteers work to support the organisation through governance, business, marketing and fundraising activities and we welcome applications at any time throughout the year.


Volunteer Counsellors

We have vacancies for experienced and qualified practitioners who could offer individual counselling to women aged 18 and over who have experienced sexual violence. To find out how to apply, please click here

Helpline Volunteers

Helpline Volunteers answer calls and help administer the day to day running of the helpline. The main activity is answering calls, e-mails, text messages and conducting face to face support for women who have suffered any form of sexual violence at any point in their lives.

Service Support Volunteers

If you would like to get involved in the ongoing development of SARSVL by helping with activities related to business, governance, marketing or fundraising we have a structure which we welcome new members to at any time. Find out more about that here.

We’re particularly keen to receive applications from women who can help us to more fully reflect the community that we strive to serve, particularly Black and Minority Ethnic women, disabled women and women aged over 50. 

We promote these volunteering opportunities via our mailing list sign up here, our Twitter account @sarsvl and Facebook sarsvl.
