Location
Islington
Closing date

North London Rape Crisis is currently looking for helpline volunteers to provide support to women and girls age 13+ who have experienced any form of sexual violence. The volunteers will be required to commit to 12 months post training and to attend a 10 week training course on Fridays from 20th September to 22nd November 2019. You are required to attend 80% of the sessions to be able to proceed to working on the helpline. You will need to have an interest in working with survivors of sexual violence and will have the opportunity to work towards an OCN accredited qualification for ‘Professionals Working in the Sexual Violence Sector’ at level 3.

We will be holding an Open Evening on Thursday 18th July between 4pm-7pm at our Head Office. This is a drop in style open evening so you can attend any time between these hours. This will give you the opportunity to meet members of the Rape Crisis team and ask any questions you may have about our service and the training we are offering. Please email us to register to attend this event.
