About the Helen Bamber Foundation
The Helen Bamber Foundation (HBF) is a human rights charity based in London which was founded in 2005. Our specialist team of therapists, doctors and legal experts have an international reputation for providing therapeutic care, medical consultation, legal protection and practical support to survivors of human rights violations.
HBF grew from the recognition that people who have suffered prolonged inter-personal violence – whether from human trafficking; war; community, domestic or gender-based violence – present with similar physical and psychological symptoms to torture survivors and experience the same complex and enduring responses to their trauma.
We offer our clients a Model of Integrated Care, providing legal, medical, psychological and welfare support, as well as an Integration Programme which includes arts-based groups, and skills-based classes such as English and IT. Through this, we help our clients to develop a sustained recovery from extreme trauma.
If you have good communication skills and experience supporting a vulnerable client group and are keen to get experience in a Human Rights Charity, we encourage you to apply!
About the role
We are looking for volunteers to support our clients at our weekly Community Group. Every week we host a space for our clients to socialise, relax, have fun, share a meal together and get involved in various workshops, including physical wellbeing and mental health, financial skills, educational and employment skills, therapeutic activities and peer support sessions. There are also opportunities for clients to speak to the HBF welfare & housing and legal teams if they need advice. The group of clients have been identified as our most isolated clients who benefit from a regular opportunity to socialise and meet new people. The Community Group encourages our clients to participate in a community, gain useful information and skills through workshops, and increase their confidence and independence.
