Volunteering with TRC

Could you help survivors of sexual violence by volunteering with us? We are always looking for motivated and committed women to join our fantastic band of volunteers!

Volunteering with TRC can include:

  • Volunteering on both our helplines (General line, and and Black, Asian and minoritized ethnic line), to provide essential support for women and girls who have been raped or sexually abused whether recently or in the past
  • Providing email support to women who have experienced the above
  • Fundraising and event organising
  • Campaigning, Press and Media
  • Publicity and supporters’ newsletters
  • Funding and bid writing
  • Monitoring and Evaluation
  • Administrative support, IT, Human Resources
  • Garden maintenance

We would like to encourage women of all backgrounds and experience to apply. We will provide an in-depth volunteer training programme about TRC to equip our volunteers. A willingness/desire to embrace a feminist way of working, and a commitment to be part of a Collective supporting women and girls affected by rape and sexual violence is most important.

In return, you will receive on-going support in your role, access to internal and external training and a chance to really make a difference to the lives of vulnerable women and girls.

We ask for a minimum commitment from our trained volunteers to participate in your chosen working groups for at least a year. If you are volunteering on the helpline(s), then you will need to make a commitment to do one helpline session (3 hours) every 3 weeks. Being part of a Collective also requires you to help run the organisation and you will therefore need to attend monthly Steering Group meetings.
