PDAP volunteer programme was established in 2012 and in 2015 we achieved the Kirklees Quality Award for Volunteering.
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:
They can bring qualities, skills and expertise such as personal experiences, cultural understanding and language skills.
PDAP continues to develop the Volunteer Programme and we now have a volunteer led project called ‘Move On’. This project is situated within PDAP Live Safe Hub and within PDAP refuge, safe accommodation. The overall aim of ‘Move On’ is to provide end of service support to anyone who has completed support from any of PDAP services.
