Volunteers are an integral part of Kairos’ work and every week enable us to reach out to some of the most vulnerable women in Coventry.
We are now recruiting for a variety of volunteering opportunities in Coventry, including volunteers to support our Evening Drop In and Outreach Service (Wednesdays & Fridays 19.45 -22.00pm), the STEPS programme and Feeling Safe project (mid-week, daytime activities)
What you could gain from volunteering with Kairos WWT
The volunteering roles at Kairos offer a wide range of experiences, from supporting the Drop In Sessions, to the STEPS programme through to our work with 18-24 year olds in the Feeling Safe project. The work is varied and interesting and sometimes challenging! You will hopefully gain great satisfaction from forging trusting and reliable friendships with the women we work with. You will also gain experience of working with women who are struggling with life controlling issues such as sex work, addiction, abuse, homelessness and mental health issues. Ongoing training is offered to all volunteers and volunteer expenses are reimbursed.
“Volunteering makes me feel that I am part of something that has the potential to change someone’s life and that is a very positive feeling” Jane, current volunteer.
“Volunteering has given me practical experience in a field I want to go into and has given me the opportunity to make a difference”
“I now have more confidence in relating to different people and my awareness has been raised”
“I am now more aware of what happens in my local community and the reasons behind it”
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please complete the attached registration form and return it to: firstname.lastname@example.org by 14th August 2017 for inclusion in our upcoming induction program.
