Volunteer

There are several ways that you can lend your support to our organisation and our mission to help survivors of domestic violence and abuse, against women and children.

1. Helpline Support: One crucial way volunteers can assist is by becoming helpline volunteers. These individuals provide a vital lifeline to survivors in need, offering empathy, support, and information about available resources. Training would be provided to ensure volunteers are equipped with the necessary skills to handle sensitive calls effectively.

2. Fundraising and Events: Volunteers can also get involved in organising fundraising events or campaigns to raise much-needed funds for the organisation. Whether it's hosting a sponsored walk, a charity auction, or a bake sale, every contribution helps support the services provided to survivors.

3. Awareness and Education: Volunteers can help raise awareness about domestic violence and abuse by participating in outreach activities, workshops, or community events. They can also assist in delivering educational sessions in schools or workplaces to help prevent and address these issues.

4. Administrative Support: There may be opportunities for volunteers to assist with administrative tasks such as helping with office and donation organisation. This type of support helps ensure the smooth running of the organisation and allows staff to focus on providing direct services to survivors.

5. Advocacy and Campaigning: Volunteers can advocate for policy changes or participate in campaigns aimed at ending domestic abuse. This could involve writing letters to policymakers, participating in advocacy events, or spreading awareness through social media.

Overall, volunteers play a crucial role in supporting the work of Coventry Haven Women's Aid and making a positive impact in the lives of survivors. Their dedication and commitment help create safer communities and empower survivors to rebuild their lives free from violence and abuse.
