© 2017 Volunteer for Harpenden
Hertfordshire Domestic Abuse Helpline is a registered charity and is a free, confidential and anonymous telephone service to assist anyone affected by domestic abuse. We aim to offer callers affected by Domestic Violence and Abuse a supportive response and access to a range of support agencies, relevant to each individual’s particular situation.
Volunteers undertake two days' training and we ask them to offer two to three hours a week on the Helpline.
Supervision is offered by the Helpline manager and regular support meetings focus on ongoing training and agency services. They also offer an opportunity to talk through issues that arise. The line can be picked up on any mobile or land line, so volunteers can take calls at home, as most do, or from work or other suitable location (subject to confidentiality issues).
For more information, please email email@example.com
We are recruiting volunteers to take Helpline calls and would also be interested in hearing from anyone interested in assisting with fundraising for the Helpline.
We also have a number of opportunities for people to volunteer as Trustees - Trustee Secretary, General Trustees and Trustees with responsibility for PR and IT.
Volunteers are required to be over 18 years of age.
