Volunteers gain invaluable experience of working within a specialist domestic abuse setting and are provided with real and meaningful investment in their training and development.
Volunteers have an opportunity to use their skills and experiences to help women work towards positive change. Volunteering is a rewarding experience and gives individuals the opportunity to build new skills and meet new people.
There are a variety of ways in which you can donate your time and skills to LDAS. Volunteers offer practical support, advice and guidance to the service and to the women we work with.
Volunteers are integral to the work we deliver at LDAS because they support the organisation in providing specialist provision to women so they can live their lives free from abuse. Volunteering is an extremely rewarding thing to do and will improve your skills, confidence, self-esteem as well as improve your employability prospects, if you are looking for paid employment.
In order to become a volunteer, you will be have to apply for an application form and provide two separate, unrelated referees. You will also be expected to attend an interview and if successful, an induction will be arranged where you will learn about the organisation.
