Volunteering programme

Would you like to join the largest provider of women-only services in Bristol bringing innovation, expertise, established partnerships and extensive experience?

There are lots of exciting opportunities at Missing Link, Next Link and Safe Link to get involved in to support us. If you are interested in volunteering but don’t see a suitable role here, please get in touch and we can discuss the options!

Volunteers are highly valued as part of our organisation, they bring energy, enthusiasm and wide ranging skills to build the capacity in our services. Women with lived experience bring a vital understanding and extra dimension to our work and what we can achieve. Without volunteers, some of our most important and effective services would not be able to operate.

Ongoing training and support is provided for all of our voluntary roles.

Female Children’s Play Worker Volunteers

Do you want to make a positive difference to the lives of children and families who have experienced domestic abuse?

We are looking for empathetic, reliable and patient volunteers to organise and deliver play sessions for children living in our safe houses. Your support will allow the children to engage with the service, in turn contributing to their physical, emotional and mental wellbeing.

This is a fantastic opportunity for people who would like to gain an understanding of domestic abuse services whilst having fun with and supporting children.
