Volunteer With Us


We are looking for volunteers to join our helpline team. The helpline is open every day from 7am-10pm.


We are looking for:


  • Qualified counsellors, Psychotherapists and relevant professionals. 

  • Excellent listening skills and empathy

  • To have an open mind, non judgemental and the ability to not give an opinion

  • Previous experience of working with the bereaved (an advantage but not essential)

  • Previous experience of working a helpline (an advantage but not essential)

  • Reliable, self aware, conscientious and willing to learn in order to deliver an optimum service


The charity exists to provide information, advice and support to those affected by the crisis and where required, referrals for therapeutic intervention. Our aim is to alleviate the mental impact and distress caused directly or indirectly by the disease. The volunteers listen to those in need, support callers in dealing with their bereavement, or offer guidance in dealing with issues caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The service is open to members of the public, NHS workers or care staff who are struggling to cope at this difficult time. We work closely with the NHS Trusts and other charitable organisations to ensure help is available to those who need it.


If you currently hold an enhanced and in date DBS check, you will be required to carry out a basic DBS check. If not, you are required to carry out an enhanced check.


Thank you. Your support is invaluable.
