Fabulous Volunteer Training & Development Opportunities
The Lanarkshire Rape Crisis Centre is currently making arrangements to recruit new volunteers interested in developing their knowledge and skills through specialist training, in relation to supporting survivors of rape and other forms of sexual abuse.
LRCC provides practical and emotional support to women and girls (over 12 years), who have experienced rape or/and any other form of sexual abuse not matter how long ago it happened. LRCC aims to be inclusive and as such our services are accessible to all women, girls over 12 years old, trans people and those who identify as non-binary.
We particularly want to create an environment where all communities feel free to become involved in volunteer work within LRCC, to enable us to reflect the diversity that exists across the wider areas of Lanarkshire.
We are aiming to recruit volunteers to help:
- Deliver support to survivors of rape & sexual abuse
- Support fundraising activities to generate income
- Support with admin tasks within the office
- Other as required
We are seeking volunteers with various skills and knowledge in the following areas:
- Voluntary sector
- Gender based violence
- Equality and diversity
