We would love to hear from you if you are interested in volunteering. There are many ways in which you can help us and our clients, so please use the ‘Contact Us’ facility on the website to get in touch. We need volunteers to be members of the Suicide Crisis team, supporting clients on a one to one basis. You need at least level 3 counselling skills for these voluntary roles, and you’ll need to be prepared to undertake further training specifically to support clients who are at risk of suicide.
You may have some other skill or ability which you could contribute (publicity, communications, media liaison, computer skills, event organising or volunteer driving to take members of our team out to visit clients).
Although we have some very specific roles, we like to create roles around people’s individual qualities and experience, so if you feel that you have something specific to contribute, please let us know.
In addition, we sometimes need additional volunteers to provide clinical supervision to members of our team. Our current supervisors include the lead clinician of a psychological therapies service and two supervising counsellors. All of them are experienced in providing clinical supervision.
Please contact us to tell us about your experiences, especially your experiences of local services. Your concerns and experiences help us to provide additional services.
