Volunteer Caseworkers are trained and supervised to provide one-to-one community-based support to survivors. They work to equip clients with the skills and knowledge they need to achieve their goals and reach a point of independence.
Volunteer caseworkers spend up to 6 hours a week providing support which can include:
- Advocating for a survivor on appointments and with other services such as housing or health services.
- Supporting survivors to develop life skills.
- Empowering clients to access education and training
- Sign posting activities and groups which could help improve social inclusion and community involvement.
We will be recruiting for Volunteer Caseworkers again in summer. To keep up to date with our volunteering opportunities, sign up to our newsletter here.
Befrienders take on a more flexible role and work alongside Caseworkers to compliment the support available to survivors.
They work to provide holistic support by:
- Providing friendship and extra support to our clients, investing in a relationship with them by meeting up for a coffee, attending community activities etc.
- Advocating for survivors at various appointments as necessary.
- Sign posting services, organisations and groups as required.
