Volunteering

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with NDAS.  We have lots of different volunteering roles that are essential for us to help as many people as we do – everything from helping with admin at HQ, to being a mentor and supporting someone in their community, to actively fundraising and being an Ambassador for NDAS.

 

We provide training and support, pay travel and expenses and we see our volunteers as an essential part of our team. Without our volunteers, we would really struggle. 

We rely on the goodwill of dedicated individuals to enable us to continue our work within the community to help support survivors of domestic abuse. Our volunteers come from a diverse range of backgrounds, with their own set of unique skills, knowledge and experiences.  If you are interested in volunteering with us and would like more information, please email: info@ndas-org.co.uk

Please note, if you have been the victim of domestic abuse in the past and would like to apply for a voluntary position with us that involves working with clients, we will only be able to consider applications from individuals who have been out of the abusive relationship for at least 3 years. This is to protect your own mental wellbeing. 

NDAS is committed to quality, equality and diversity. Our recruitment and selection procedures reflect this commitment which applies to both volunteers and paid staff.

Why volunteer with NDAS

  • Training, support and access to ongoing development

  • Volunteering is really good for your health, helps maintain wellbeing and makes you feel good

  • Volunteering with NDAS is a great opportunity for someone that would like to give back to their community and make a difference to the lives of families affected by domestic abuse.

  • We can also provide you with valuable experience for your CV and will provide you with references after 6 months volunteering with us.
