There are many different ways women can get involved with Rape Crisis work. This includes volunteering at Rape Crisis Centres around the country.
Volunteering is crucial to the Rape Crisis movement. Many Rape Crisis Centres are often looking for women to train and volunteer with them.
- Provide support to women and girls who have experienced sexual violence.
- Work on a telephone helpline, online, or face-to-face.
- Become a Trustee or member of a committee.
- Help with office admin.
- Raise funds and/or awareness.
What roles are available depends on the needs of individual Rape Crisis Centres and not all are able to take on volunteers.
Each Centre has its own ways of recruiting, training and supporting volunteers. You will usually have to be a woman aged 18 or over. You might also be asked to commit to a minimum number of volunteering hours each week or month.
You can also contact your nearest Rape Crisis Centre directly.
