Why not Volunteer with our Project?
The One to One Project regularly recruits volunteers to join our small friendly team as Counsellors, Mentors and Trustees.
Our services are held in high regards amongst the local community and health professionals and this is maintained by the careful selection of our team.
The clinical work that we carry out is often complex and emotionally demanding and therefore there exists a thorough application process to ensure that all of our volunteers are appropriately trained.
The One to One Project recruits qualified and trainee counsellors, who have completed or are in their final year of advanced/post graduate diploma level training or equivalent in counselling or psychotherapy.
The Project is a highly regarded provider of placements by local colleges and universities for the opportunity it offers to work with a broad range of clients.
The Project also offers:
- A safe and supported environment, working to BACP Ethical Guidelines
- Group supervision each month for two hours.
- Low-cost clinical supervisors for individual supervision (required monthly)
- An exciting training programme
- Hours towards required diploma hours or BACP accreditation
If you are qualified or in the last year of a recognised diploma course, please download our application form and return to the Project Coordinator, Deborah Regan, who will arrange an informal meeting.
Mentoring volunteers are also recruited on a regular basis and are required to attend a thorough in-house training. Mentors are given full support in Safe-Guarding, Lone Working, Boundaries and Confidentiality.
Mentor volunteer training comprises of attending one day a week for five consecutive weeks between 10.00am and 2.00pm.
If you are looking for experience in working with mental health or think that you can offer a listening ear to support and encourage a more fulfilling way of life for someone, please download the application form and return it to the Assistant Project Manager, Sarah.
If client work isn’t for you, maybe you would like to support the Project in becoming a Trustee.
Our small informal group of Trustees are vital to the overall management of the Project and are instrumental in planning the Project’s exciting future.
Why not consider making your skills and experience count? Our Trustees come from a variety of backgrounds and have a diverse range of expertise, including fundraising, minute-taking, administration, marketing and promotion and volunteer care.
You should enjoy working as part of a team and be available for evening meetings once a month.
We would love to have your support!
