The help that Jersey Women’s Refuge receives from volunteers is invaluable and without support from volunteers we would be unable to provide our vital 24-hour service. Committing to volunteering with the refuge can not only be rewarding but may give you valuable work experience. There are many ways you can support Jersey Women’s Refuge as volunteer, below are a few examples of volunteering opportunities our charity offers:
The Refuge safe house and helpline run 24-hour, all year round and therefore volunteers support the service at various times during the day, evening, night duties and weekends, depending on personal availability.
Volunteers working at the safe house will undergo an induction training programme which gives our volunteers the skills, knowledge and confidence to support clients at the refuge in a “helping role”. Volunteers will receive on-going training and support in their role. Volunteers will be required to complete a Disclosure and Barring Service check.
We also require volunteers to support us with our fundraising events. There are a variety of ways to help us at our different events throughout the year and if you are interested in helping in any way please contact our fundraiser at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We run courses accessible to women who have experienced domestic abuse and many of our clients required creche assistance so they may attend our courses. Creche volunteers will be required to have some experience working or looking after children and will need to complete a Disclosure and Barring Service check.
