Working or Volunteering for Behind Closed Doors, you can be confident of being valued and appreciated and know that your support and contribution genuinely changes people's lives positively.
We have no current employment opportunities.
Our Trustees are responsible for the governance and efficiency of our service. Their mix of knowledge and skills supports our work and helps drive the organisation forward at a strategic level. We are currently looking for new members who can bring key skills to the Board in the Legal, Business, Change Management, Finance, HR and Statistics sectors. Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Behind Closed Doors recognises the tremendous value that Volunteers bring to the organisation in carrying out the aims of the project and in supporting the people we work with. Volunteers are an essential link in offering an end-to-end support service to people who are, or have, experienced domestic violence and abuse.
We do our best to provide a placement that meets the needs of Behind Closed Doors but that also suits the needs of the Volunteer. To achieve this we do ask that Volunteers commit to a minimum of 6 hours per week in one day, (or 3-hours one evening per week for our Out-of-Hours service) for a minimum of 6 months after completing training and a period of mentoring.
Volunteers in the Prevention and Recovery Service (PARS) focus on delivering emotional and low-level practical support direct to people who are assessed as low/medium risk. This may be structured phone support and/or face-to-face meetings.
