With Us

Volunteering with Survivor Sanctuary

Survivor Sanctuary runs multiple groups across the city, several times a month. Mostly on a Saturday afternoon, and some during the weekday. Our volunteers host our sessions by welcoming people and letting them into the building, making hot drinks and serving our delicious home made cakes, setting up our activities and packing up and cleaning away at the end.


You will also sit and take part with the planned activities and chat to members of the group, informally, ensuring they are happy and taking part. We have separate facilitators who come in and run the activities so you will not need to design or lead these but we would love you to help them set up and join in with the activity with the rest of the group. 


We do not require a regular commitment from you, you can sign up for dates that you are available. We just ask that you commit to support one session in 6 months. 


Training for working with survivors will be provided.


Who are we looking for?

  • You do not need to be a survivor, we encourage people with any lived experience
