Community Re-engagement Volunteers (0.5 days – 2 days a week)
Survivors of domestic abuse can struggle to re-engage in the community after their traumatic experiences. We are looking for a number of volunteers to help support survivors to build their confidence and self-esteem and act as their ‘companion’ when taking part in everyday community-based activities. For example, you might accompany them to a local National Trust, a knit and natter group or simply meet for a coffee and a chat in a local café. Expenses for both volunteer and survivor will be covered.
We envisage that this will be for half a day to 1 day a week depending on how much time you can commit and how many survivors you may wish to support.
