Volunteer with us

Could you be a part of our diverse, inspiring, vibrant and motivated team making a positive contribution to rebuilding the lives of women and children? At Solace we provide excellent volunteer opportunities to be a part of a leading domestic and sexual violence charity in London, which offers a great range of benefits. Volunteers can get involved in our specialist services from working directly with survivors to playing key roles in our central support services. Volunteering is a fantastic way to gain skills and working experience, and there is lots of training on offer so you can learn and develop. So stand with us and volunteer to help create safe lives and strong futures in our community.

How do you become a volunteer with Solace?

Any new volunteering position will be advertised below. You need to complete an application form identifying skills you have that you might bring to the role and a personal statement. The personal statement is a chance for you to talk about why you would like to volunteer with us, why you think you would be a good fit for the role and any experience you have from relevant work (paid or unpaid). 


The team that is recruiting a volunteer will then draw up a shortlist and call those applicants to interview. After the interviews, we will let you know either way and offer feedback to everyone who interviewed. When you accept a volunteering position, we will then onboard you into Solace, which involves providing two references, doing a DBS check, and attending induction training. The training will give you an overview of the work Solace undertakes and an introduction to VAWG (Violence Against Women and Girls).
