Our amazing volunteers provide us with their time, passion and energy, helping us to continue supporting vulnerable women. They make an enormous contribution to our services by building bridges with our tenants and service users or supporting core operations at our Head Office. In return we offer volunteers meaningful roles with regular supervision and training opportunities that have a real impact on women's lives.
Office volunteers - Supporting our teams in Finance, IT, Property Services, Housing & Income Services, HR, Fundraising and Customer Services
Summer Research internships - Qualitative and quantitative research projects
Older Tenants Telephone Befrienders
Refuge volunteers (female only) - Working alongside staff in the refuges providing practical support to women and children fleeing domestic abuse
Mentors (female only) - Regularly meeting with mentees to support them to reach their full potential
Student Placements - We work in partnership with a range of colleges and Universities to offer formal placements to students. Contact us if you would like do your placement with us, and we will check with your place of study how we can work together. Roles with direct contact with service users will be offered to female candidates only.
During the last 12 months, we have recruited 33 new volunteers who have contributed 3,048 hours of hard work, effort, support and dedication.
We have helped our volunteers to apply for jobs both within Housing for Women and external to our organisation. 26% of all departed volunteers left their role because they gained paid employment.
