Volunteer with JWA

JWA is currently recruiting for:

- volunteer counsellors in Manchester & the Redbridge area

- complementary therapists in North London & Manchester

See below for more information, or call Anat 020 8445 8060

Jewish Women’s Aid thanks its dedicated, committed volunteer base of more than 150 volunteers, who are the lifeblood of our charity. It is only because of our volunteers that we can continue the vital work we do supporting Jewish women and children affected by domestic violence and abuse.

Jewish Women’s Aid is proud to be a community organisation run by Jewish women, for Jewish women. We depend on volunteers to provide some of our core services and to help us make our voice heard. JWA would not be able to continue its vital work without our team of over 150 volunteers. JWA’s volunteers have knowledge and understanding of domestic violence and abuse, together with knowledge of the practical and emotional impact of domestic violence and abuse within a Jewish home.

You will be offered training to enable you to undertake your role to the very highest professional standard. JWA is currently recruiting volunteers in the areas below. If you are interested in volunteering, please email Lee, the JWA volunteer co-ordinator, or call 020 8445 8060. Lee will give you some more details about the current roles available and send you an application pack if you are interested.

You’ll then need to complete an application form, attend an interview and provide references. You will also need to complete a DBS check. If you are accepted as a volunteer, specialist induction and training will be provided.
