Volunteering opportunities

“Lifecentre has a special place in my heart and volunteering for it is truthfully one of the best things I have ever done… it has opened my eyes to the world around me. When I walk out of the door and head home after a shift, I always feel like what I have done has made a real difference.”
There are lots of ways you can get involved in supporting Lifecentre as a volunteer. You could help at one of our existing centres or, for some tasks, from home (providing you have access to a computer and the internet). Possibilities include helping to staff the office in busy periods; helping with fundraising research, applications, reporting; helping with administration. There are also opportunities to volunteer as a counsellor (assuming you have the relevant qualifications) or train as a telephone helpline volunteer.

MEET AND GREET
In order to extend our working hours and allow more people to access counselling each day we are looking for a wonderful team of volunteers who could spend a number of evenings, meeting and greeting clients as they arrive for counselling and staying within our centres to ensure that counsellors are not working alone. This role would be based in either Chichester or Worthing. If you are interested in this volunteering opportunity or would like some more information, please email kim@lifecentre.uk.com.

HELPLINE TRAINING
We are looking to train women and men who would like to serve on our Helplines in either Chichester or Worthing. The commitment once trained will be three sessions per month (this includes a supervision evening for your support), on a voluntary basis. We will offer full training, so volunteers do not need to have any previous counselling qualifications – simply an ability to offer support through listening without judging. It is an 85 hour training course, starting in September 2019.
