This is an exciting time! Let’s tackle domestic abuse and sexual violence together across the South West.

We are looking for empathic, creative and enthusiastic individuals to join our team of Volunteer Community Champions.

Volunteer Community Champions will join groups of people in different roles (detailed below) who represent and support our organisation in the community, championing the innovative and vital work that we do in the fields of domestic abuse and sexual violence.

As a group of passionate volunteers you will come together to attend local events and festivals, organize small scale fundraising activities for us, collect cheques and give thank yous, advocate for our work and raise awareness. With excellent training and support these groups will embed our vital work within communities.
