The volunteers are kind and know what they are talking about - Young person
Just Drop-In is proud to be anchored within its local community, providing local services for local people. Volunteers often provide the bedrock that makes this happen and we couldn’t offer the services we do without them.
Volunteers work across all our Services including Counselling, Foundations and Well-Being Groups. Professionals also volunteer their specialist skills behind the scenes and we are strengthened by their specialist knowledge and abilities. We are proud to have over 50 Volunteers selflessly giving their time to children and young people.
We are firmly committed to diversity in all areas of our work. We believe we have much to learn and profit from diverse cultures and perspectives.
We welcome volunteers of any age, background or experience.
Each year we support up to 3 Trainee Counsellors a year with a placement as part of our commitment to strengthen the counselling community.
Unfortunately we cannot support any new trainees in 2020 due to Covid Restrictions and we will review our position in early 2021
We greatly benefit from a team of qualified volunteer counsellors who devote half a day to a day a week volunteering their skills to support 4 young people to access counselling.
In return we pay supervision fees, expenses and provide some amazing development opportunities.
