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. You could come and be part of a team making a real difference in our city.
WHAT YOU CAN GAIN FROM VOLUNTEERING
The volunteering roles at Kairos offer a wide range of experiences, from office-based roles to supporting daytime group sessions, 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 using your skills to support some of Coventry’s most vulnerable women and strengthen Kairos as an organisation. You will also gain direct or indirect experience of working with women who are struggling with life controlling issues such as prostitution, addiction, abuse, homelessness and mental health issues.
Induction and ongoing training and supervision is offered to all volunteers, and volunteer expenses are reimbursed in accordance with the expenses policy.
We are not currently recruiting for any project-based roles. Please check back here in the future where we will post details of any opportunities. You can also make sure you stay up to date with the latest Kairos news by following us on Facebook and Twitter.
