By volunteering with WRASAC you’ll be contributing to our Vision of ‘a world without sexual abuse, violence or exploitation’.
Our volunteers, befrienders and board of governors are an essential part of our organisation. The time, support and commitment they give to the organisation enable us to achieve our aims or providing a quality support service to women and young people who have experienced any form of rape, sexual abuse and / or exploitation.
Our volunteers currently get involved in a wide range of projects, including:
- Support Work
- Awareness Raising
- Group Work
If you have at least 2 hours per week to spare and think you have the skills and desire to volunteer for us then why not get in touch. In return we provide excellent training and experience and we cover your expenses.
There are many things you gain personally from volunteering. This is what our volunteers have to say…
“I find the women who attend WRASAC inspirational; It means a lot that they can get some benefit from seeing volunteers like myself, and I certainly have learned a lot from them too”
“I have built up my confidence since starting my volunteering with WRASAC, and it has helped me make the decision to go on and seek further counselling qualifications”
“Volunteering with WRASAC has helped me gain confidence in working with women who have suffered abuse and trauma, and added to the skills I can offer as a counsellor. This is helping me further my career as a counselling psychologist, and is very rewarding personally as I feel I am making a difference for a cause I believe in- the empowerment and equality of women.”
“For me volunteering has meant being a valued member of wrasac it has enabled me to get involved and participate in various activities eg volunteer recruitment day. I have gained confidence in working within group support sessions.”
“As a placement student and now as a volunteer counsellor I have found my experience at WRASAC to be extremely valuable. It has allowed me to build my confidence in counselling skills as well as, my confidence in life. Through working at WRASAC I feel I have more skills to offer and it has helped me to get a great job!”
