Volunteering

At Luminar our Volunteer Programme offers you the opportunity to be part of a dynamic service providing support to those who have experienced domestic abuse. Our volunteers are an integral part of our work and are vital in allowing us to deliver the services we do.

We work with a range of volunteers from those who dedicate regular hours every week to deliver educational workshops and groups, to those who complete one off fund raising events to raise awareness of the work we do. We are looking for passionate, empathetic individuals to be involved with us.

Experience of domestic abuse is not necessary as training is provided, but an understanding of the difficulties and barriers faced by families is useful.

You are in the right place if:

  • You are passionate about supporting others
  • Have time available to dedicate to the charity
  • Are willing to complete our induction and Level 2 accredited Volunteer Programme
  • Will work within appropriate professional boundaries and ethics
  • Can attend regular team meetings to support your colleagues

We have four primary roles available

But always love to hear from people who have a secret skill they want to share.

  • Groupworker

    This role requires being involved in (and potentially leading!) workshops and programmes in children’s centres and other professional settings. These aim to raise awareness within families who may be accessing our counselling service and helping them work through any changes they are experiencing.

  • Fundraiser

    A resourceful position that requires you to work with local businesses and events to raise funds that can be invested into the charity. This might be one off events or building relationships with local businesses to support the work we do in a longer-term capacity.

  • Trustee

    An opportunity to really shape the organisation structure and direction. This role involves attending quarterly trustee meetings and is a more business-focused role.

  • Volunteer Counsellor

    Our volunteer counselling programme offers a challenging and rewarding role for those passionate about making a difference. It is a great opportunity to gain experience, develop skills and accrue hours working with adults and children in a range of settings including primary and secondary schools.
