The Salvation Army's Survivor Support Service
Newcastle-upon-Tyne: Drop-In Volunteer (female drop-in)
We are passionate about supporting victims and survivors of modern slavery and we cannot do this without the help of skilled people like you.
The Salvation Army’s Survivor Support Service works alongside governmental (statutory) and non-governmental services by providing practical and holistic support to survivors of modern slavery. Through CONNECT, we support people on their journey from victim to survivor.
We are looking for volunteers to help run daytime support sessions for 3-4 hours each week. These sessions offer a range of support to female survivors as they move forward and establish life in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. This includes support to access services (eg housing, benefits, education, language lessons), practical activities and educational workshops.
The CONNECT programme provides survivors with a friendly environment to create new life skills, make local connections and receive move-on support. This builds a foundation for continued support which positively impacts clients’ health and wellbeing.
As one of our volunteers, you will receive specialised training and regular support.

The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
