VOLUNTEERING WITH SOS
Current Home Based Volunteering Opportunities with us
We are always looking for compassionate and kind individuals to join our team behind the scenes.
If you like the sound of working and training from home, helping to make a difference to vulnerable people and being part of a team that really wants to help, then you could be right for SOS.
Our next home based online training opportunity is:
23rd & 24th May 2022. Day 1 will require 3 hours of your time to complete an online manual and Q&A and you can do this at your leisure. Day2 will require your availability between 10am and 3pm for a zoom discussion. You must be able to complete both days on the dates given. Please do not apply for this training if you cannot do both days, thank you.
(Please note, this is initial training only and if you are successful, you will be invited to further training prior to starting with us)
Frontline Phone Support Volunteers
Full and extensive training is provided. You need to be emotionally resilient and mature and have great listening and conversational skills to support our vulnerable callers.
You will be required to undergo an enhanced DBS check
Spot Check & Call Monitoring Volunteers
In order to establish and maintain the highest service delivery to our callers, we regularly check and monitor calls for internal purposes only. If you’d like to join this vital and growing team, please apply
If you’d like to consider joining our growing training team, delivering training to front line volunteers, then apply today as we’d love to hear from you. Previous experience in delivering training would be useful, but not essential.
Our frontline volunteers are constantly monitored to ensure their emotional health remains stable and is not impacted by the role they do.
We are looking for welfare volunteers who can join our team as part of our monitoring and feedback process.
Please complete the online application and upload your CV. You will be required to complete all training modules we offer to you.
