  • About the Volunteer Role
    WomenCentre are looking for committed female volunteers to support our drop-in which runs on a Monday afternoon 12.30-4pm in Dewsbury Empire House. The drop-in allows women to come in for the afternoon to feel part of a community to reduce feelings of isolation , loneliness and build structure to the week. Women have the opportunity to get involved in creative arts and crafts. There are also groups such as confidence groups that run alongside the drop-in if women feel that they want to be part of. The opportunity allows you to build on existing skills such as listening, caring, empathy and patience. You will be supporting women around their mental health and well being needs and making them feel welcome in the space. The role requires you to be a pro active individual who doesn't shy away from talking to women individually and in group settings. The conversations may be sensitive as they may be around emotions or something troubling that has happened during the week. There will be staff members around to support volunteers. In return you will feel part of a valued volunteer/staff team and invited to any training that is relevant to the role.
