VOLUNTEER COUNSELLORS

For our face-to-face counselling service in North-West London, Stamford Hill &  Manchester, and for our nationwide telephone counselling service.

Jewish Women’s Aid provides free support to Jewish women who are affected by domestic violence.

We are looking for qualified counsellors (minimum diploma level) who have some experience in working with vulnerable adults, have a good understanding of the Jewish community, and are aware of the issues faced by Jewish women experiencing domestic violence and abuse.

Counsellors will see a minimum of two clients on a weekly basis, to fit around their commitments. JWA offers regular supervision and CPD.

This would be a rewarding volunteering opportunity that would help make a real change in the lives of Jewish women.

For more information, please contact Anat/Judy in the JWA Office, 020 8445 8060, anat@jwa.org.uk / judy@jwa.org.uk

VOLUNTEER HELPLINERS

For our confidential, anonymous Helpline, open 9.30-9.30 Mon-Thurs. (excluding Jewish holidays)

Jewish Women’s Aid’s Helpline is there for when a woman summons up the strength and courage it takes to speak about domestic violence & abuse which she is affected by.

The Helpline is staffed entirely by volunteers, who do two to three 3-hour shifts per month. It is a virtual Helpline, which volunteers do from home.  Typically, a woman is abused 35 times before speaking out about the abuse. That means that Helpliners need specific skills to be able to listen, help a caller tell her difficult story, and empower her to make choices to access the help and support she needs. All new Helpliners get a full training, and get full support when on their shifts.

To find out more, please contact Judy in the JWA Office, 020 8445 8060 judy@jwa.org.uk

Jewish Women’s Aid thanks its dedicated, committed volunteer base of more than 140 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 140 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.
