We relaunched our Volunteer Programme in 2021.

Are you looking for a dynamic, exciting volunteering opportunity? Are you wanting to meet new people? Learn new skills? Gain experience? Or may be you would like to give something back to your local community.

Our aim is to provide volunteers with comprehensive training and experiential learning along with the opportunity to be a part of the PDAP team supporting people affected by domestic abuse.

Volunteers are an important and valuable asset to PDAP. Volunteers help to enrich and extend the services PDAP currently offer and give the community that we serve a stake in what we do.

Volunteers can bring a different perspective to the work of PDAP with fresh ideas, knowledge and experience.

Please see the tabs below for further information on the types of roles available.

From supporting our clients to: build their support network & access the community,  support their Health & Emotional wellbeing; right through to moving on from PDAP support. We have a range of Volunteering opportunities to really enhance the services PDAP provides to our clients and which offers a rich experience to Volunteers who are wanting to offer face to face support.

Administration Roles

Within our administration roles there are volunteer opportunities for people who want to be in the public face, for example  Рsupporting employees to raise awareness of Domestic Abuse in the community and promote the work PDAP does, or maybe you would like to support our clients to have a voice, with an Engagement & Consultancy Volunteer role.
