Why not volunteer?
Volunteering is the commitment of your time and energy for the benefit of society, local communities, and charity organisations. The term volunteering covers many different activities. It can mean visiting an elderly or sick neighbour, giving blood, doing a sponsored walk, getting involved in your local clubs, fundraising, assisting with administration, the list is endless.
Some people volunteer a few times a year when they have a spare day, whereas others give a regular commitment of a few hours per week. It is up to each individual to decide what time they can dedicate to volunteering within the community.
- Why you want to volunteer.
- What type of voluntary work you would like to do
- What experience/skills you can offer
- How much time you can Give.
Clare Haven Services require volunteers in the following areas:
- Court accompaniment
- Awareness Raising
If you would like to become a VOLUNTEER with Clare Haven, please contact our Volunteer Co-ordinator at 065-6842646.
Clare Haven runs volunteer induction training, with the following aims:
To provide an overview of the volunteer department to include your roles and responsibilities as a volunteer.
- To raise awareness and improve your understanding of domestic violence/abuse.
- To provide an overview of the structure and range of services of Clare Haven.
The benefits of the training are as follows:
For the Volunteer – Develop knowledge, skills and explore attitudes and beliefs regarding violence/abuse against women in intimate relationships. Learn about the work of Clare Haven and decide where is the most appropriate area for you, as a volunteer, in the organisation.
For Clare Haven – Gives us a chance to get to know and assess volunteers – their skills, potential and suitability for volunteering within the organisation. The training also gives us an opportunity to outline the organisation’s aims, guidelines and structures.
A huge thank you to all our volunteers – past and present. Without your generosity we would not be able to provide the range of services that we currently provide to women and children.
