Rape and Sexual Abuse Helpline Volunteers
We are currently recruiting volunteers for our Helpline which is open Monday-Thursday evenings 7:30pm-9:30pm . Our Helpline Volunteers provide a telephone listening and support service to survivors of rape and sexual abuse to callers and their family and friends.
RASASC is an independent registered charity which has been providing support to male and female survivors of rape and sexual abuse (both recent and non-recent) and young people aged over 13, from across Surrey since 1992.
Volunteers are an important part of the work we do.
The role is currently done remotely from home due to COVID-19. You must have a safe, secure, and undisturbed space where you can take calls and not be overheard. In the future the helpline aims to return to operate from the office in Guildford, so volunteers will need to be able to travel to the office eventually for their shifts (there is no date planned for this at present, so it would be unlikely to happen in the current year)
