Closing date
3 x 4 hr shifts + 1 clinical supervision session (1.5hrs) per month.
Contract type

The NLRC helpline supports women and girls aged 13+ who have experienced any form of sexual violence at any time in their life. NLRC Helpline Volunteers are trained to offer empathetic listening and emotional support to women at various stages of their healing journey. The helpline serves as the doorway into our services, such as advocacy, counselling and groups, as well as just as a space for people to talk.

In addition to answering calls from survivors, the role also involves responding to professional’s enquiries, contacting survivors to complete referrals and to check in, as well as providing administrative support to the Helpline Co-Ordinator.

We are open to offering a purely administrative voluntary role, please let us know if you are interested in this.
