Counselling Service Volunteers
We are currently recruiting for volunteer counsellors.
Our BACP accredited counselling service is looking for volunteers to provide free and low cost counselling to the local community. We are committed to supporting the development of counsellors and provide comprehensive support via induction, supervision, training and managerial and adminstrative support. Counsellors are asked to make a small contribution towards supervision costs.
Criteria for application:
- You have completed the first year of a BACP / UKCP Accredited Person-Centred, Integrative or Psychodynamic Diploma or Masters degree
- You have already completed some counselling placement hours. Our clients have a wide range of presenting issues and some have very complex needs and therefore our placement is unsuitable for someone at the very start of their counselling journey.
- You would be able to work with 3 clients per week and attend fortnightly supervision
- You intend to commit for a minimum of 2 years.
If you meet the criteria above then please contact firstname.lastname@example.org / 020 8670 2775 to request an application form or for more information.
Advice Centre evening legal session volunteers
This operates as an adjunct to the daytime advice centre. The underlying aim is to give initial advice to anyone who attends. The type of legal advice is varied but the main types which arise are Consumer problems, Matrimonial and family matters, General private client matters, General Court matters and Employment matters.
The sessions are held remotley over the phone every Monday from 7pm – 8.30 / 9pm. The volunteer must be a qualified lawyer and should be able to commit for a minimum of 6 months. We also take on para legals to assit the lawyer and they need to be training to be a solcitor or doing pupilage to become a barrisater. Generally two volunteers are on the session each week and are on the rota roughly every four weeks, or more frequent if they want.
