Volunteering at SARSVL

Have we got a role for you?

SARSVL volunteers are vital to the ongoing delivery and development of our services. They are in tune with our ethos, aims and objectives.

Our volunteer team consists of:

Helpline – the SARSVL Helpline is run by women, supporting women and girls who have been affected by rape or sexual violence at any time in their lives. We’re opening a new shift and we’d love to hear from you if you think you can join our friendly team and support local survivors on Thursday afternoons. For more information on the role and details for applying please click here. Don’t forget to get your application in before the deadline on 2nd May! If you have any questions, get in touch with info@sarsvl.org.uk.

Counsellors – supporting our Counselling team to deliver our specialist therapeutic service. For more information please visit our Service Delivery Volunteers page. To request an application form, or for more information, please contact our Senior Counsellor by email on katiewhitehouse@sarsvl.org.uk or by phone 0113 200 2936.

Service Support – supporting the organisation through governance, business, marketing and fundraising activities and we welcome applications at any time in the year. We are not currently inviting applications for the service support volunteer role at SARSVL, however if  you feel you have something practical and essential to offer SARSVL you can email us at info@sarsvl.org.uk and explain further.

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.
