Volunteering

Arch North East recognises that volunteers make an important and significant contribution to its work and services.

We have a range of volunteer roles currently available at Arch which include; Counselling, Administration, Receptionist, Project Support, Campaigns and Promotions, and Fundraising.  Our volunteer coordinator will be happy to discuss any of the roles with you, and to hear your ideas for new roles for volunteers, whether this is a regular or one off idea.

Benefits

Volunteering with Arch North East is an excellent way to improve your skills, knowledge and experience of working with, and on behalf of, survivors of sexual violence.  Volunteering can give you a real insight into the work we do at Arch and can improve your confidence and your employability.  As a volunteer, you will be provided with all the support and training you need, and will have opportunities to expand your skills while carrying out your role.

Volunteers will receive appropriate recognition for their contribution to Arch North East; we don’t forget the importance of a simple thank you.

Feedback from Arch Volunteers

“I have found the agency and all its staff kind helpful and understanding.  There is a wealth of knowledge in the agency and everyone is willing to answer questions and make themselves available.  Having a supervisor on hand I feel has helped me enormously and I would recommend anyone to do the training and become a volunteer.”

“I feel in general that Arch is a brilliant place to have a placement with.  All the help and support from all has made this a brilliant experience”.

“I’m having a positive and professional experience at Arch North East.  Thank you”.
