Job description

Faith to Faithless are launching a brand new helpline for apostates in the summer of 2023, for people leaving high-control religions, and we’re looking for committed, compassionate volunteers to join us. 

You will be a motivated, dedicated, and organised person with great communication skills, who is enthusiastic about volunteering your time and skills to support individuals leaving high-control religions (also known as apostates).

We’ll train you to handle calls with confidence, and you’ll be getting valuable experience in supporting service users with multifaceted needs. This is a volunteering role where you can develop your interpersonal skills, help members of our community that need it most, and make a real difference in their lives by helping them to get back on track to living happy, purposeful lives without religion.

  • To identify and maintain appropriate boundaries for all callers and recognise when and where to signpost callers for further help/information as appropriate with appropriate support from the apostate services manager
  • To proactively continue to develop appropriate knowledge, attitudes and skills through regular reading of information and attending training courses.
  • To support the training of helpline volunteers as required.
  • To attend supervision, meetings and appraisals.
  • To undertake any other appropriate duties as requested by the ASM
  • To work at all times within the policies and procedures of Humanists UK.
