Volunteering with SARSAS
Volunteer Support Workers are an essential part SARSAS and they provide thousands of hours of crucial support to survivors every year. We value our Volunteer Support Workers and to show our appreciation we provide many additional training opportunities, away days, and monthly group clinical supervision. We also understand that for some Volunteer Support Workers volunteering with us is a stepping stone on their journey into a career in this area and we try to support their progression as much as possible.
You don’t necessarily need to have experience of support work or working with sexual violence to volunteer with us – your personal qualities, views and ability to support survivors is what is important. Our training is comprehensive and will equip you with the knowledge to add to your qualities.
We currently offer two type of volunteer roles at SARSAS which have different commitment requirements and training. We ask you to consider the commitments of the training and weekly volunteering, before applying for a role with us.
Please note: we require a minimum commitment of six months following training for support roles.
