The help that volunteers provide to the helpline is invaluable and we are always looking to take on passionate and dedicated volunteers in order to support more victims of stalking.


"By volunteering at the National Stalking Helpline (NSH) I believe I was able to make a difference in people’s lives.  Responding to someone going through a distressing experience and requesting help made a whole lot of difference to me. Being able to provide them with the reassurance that they need to take action and charge of their lives is what keeps me coming back.  Volunteering at the NSH and working amongst such an open team allowed me to grow. I was able to develop my non-judgemental attitude towards others, communicate any doubts I had openly and enhance both my written and spoken communication skills.  Learning new things while volunteering here is fun and I was supported thoroughly throughout the whole process". ~ Quinn ~


"I have always wanted volunteering to be a key part of my life, and as is the way, I found that life got in the way.

In 2016 I decided to take a career break and “find myself” clichéd I know, but I really wanted to take some time for myself to decide what to do next.  I liked the idea of being useful to others, and for me, helping to empower someone to make real changes in their own lives was something I was keen to do.  I wasn’t sure exactly what, where or how, I just knew that supporting others made me feel useful, everybody likes to feel needed right!

I came across an advert for National Stalking Helpline, and I immediately felt, that this was something I would like to do.  I had no previous experience in this field but the team were really welcoming right from the very start.  The training was eye-opening and inspiring and although we were dealing with quite serious topics it made even more determined to lend my support.  Each week I learn something new about myself and human nature, and hopefully each week I have helped someone take small steps to improve their lives in a massive way." ~ Billie ~ 

 


"I have volunteered and worked in the charity sector for most of my adult life and The National Stalking Helpline is one of my favourite places. They welcome you into the team and everyone is genuine and supportive. They have a very high level of expertise and knowledge they require from their volunteers, which means volunteers are trained and supported to a high level. I have progressed and learned so much and would encourage anyone to apply." ~ Sophie ~
