WHAG Volunteer Service

Support our services

Come and support our services in a small way that makes a big difference in our service user’s journey. You could be having a chat with our service users for a couple of hours a week, collecting food donations from our local partners every week or assisting clients to their appointments as moral support. We are always looking for volunteer interpreters to support our service users. Particularly if you speak Urdu, Polish or Bengali. There are various roles available. These small contributions have been the most rewarding for our volunteers. The services are provided in the weekdays, evenings and weekend so there is usually a time to suit everyone.


During the year we run a variety of events for our service users to enhance and support their recovery. We also participate in local events raising awareness about domestic abuse in all our communities. Volunteers make a valuable contribution to our cause, by helping at the events from planning it to making tea and coffee.  Join our fun loving team today and meet some interesting new people.


Be a part of our exciting fundraising team to help raise money and promote domestic abuse awareness in your community. Learning and understanding healthy relationships at any age is a life skill that can help support your work colleagues, loved ones and friends. There are many ways you can contribute your time, whether its one off event or you would like to host a fundraising event. Some examples are cake sales, beauty events, quiz nights. There are many varied roles available throughout the year. This is a fun opportunity to meet like minded people, be a part of the team and most of all have fun and make a difference.


As an ambassador you would represent our charity at events, talking to the public about the services we provide, the training we can give in workplaces, schools and businesses. If enjoy speaking to people or want to develop your communication skills through support from WHAG, join friendly our team. 

Marathon / Sporting Events

We welcome, anyone who would like to do a sponsored sports activity to raise money, help raise awareness and advocate the services we provide for people affected by domestic abuse. This enables us to reach out and inform people about healthy relationships and support that can be accessed.  Currently, we have representative runner at London Marathon 2019.

Office Support

The operations department support our service users in a range of ways. You could be contributing to our social media content, data input, supporting our HR team, resourcing – these are just some of the tasks available. This is a great way to learn some new skills, build confidence, and gain insight into the operations of WHAG. Our friendly team look forward to meeting you.


Currently, we have no volunteering opportunities. Please fill in an application form to show interest for future availability. We publicise new opportunities on this page, and also via social media. So please make sure you follow us on twitter and like us on Facebook to receive regular updates.

Our volunteers are a crucial part of WHAG, and they help us provide a wider range of services and support to our clients.

Volunteers receive training, support and supervision, the chance to gain work experience and learn new skills, and the chance to give something back to their community. Many of our volunteers who leave us do so because they have moved into paid employment, and WHAG will provide references after three months of regular volunteering. We also provide travel expenses.

To be a WHAG volunteer, you need to be over 18 and prepared to work to WHAG’s values and policies, which include equalities and having a non-judgemental approach to the issues our clients deal with.
