I have found the organisation to be indispensable to me. My ISVA is particularly good as she helps me with all manner of practical day to day requirements. She is very professional and has a depth of knowledge which I find reassuring. I have used other support services, and without a doubt RoSA is by far the best.
Valuing our volunteers
Our volunteers are welcomed, trained and supported as part of the RoSA team. Volunteers provide an excellent service, both supporting clients and administration work. We value and greatly appreciate time donated to support our organisation.
We have several roles that we need your help with:
- Face to Face Counselling Support Workers
- Group Support Workers
- Helpline Support Workers
- Reception / Admin Support Workers
No matter which role you choose to do, your contribution will enable RoSA to deliver services to clients who are trying to overcome the challenges they face in the aftermath of rape or sexual abuse.
Volunteers are recruited from within the community and are drawn from all age groups, backgrounds and origins. Some will be ex-service users. The majority will be studying for, or have completed, a diploma course in counselling at a college or university: those without a diploma can train as support workers.
There will be an initial interview stage followed by the specialist training programme.
All our support workers and counsellors undergo in-house specialist training.
What can volunteers expect from RoSA
- Ongoing training schedule
- Regular communication e.g. quarterly volunteer meetings, monthly bulletin
- Clinical Supervision is provided once a month for support workers and counsellors in line with BACP regulations
- Travel expenses are reimbursed
- Equal opportunity policy
