Kyra Women’s Project Volunteer – Supporting women to make change
Do you have a few hours spare on a regular basis and are you passionate about helping women to improve their lives? Volunteers at Kyra all have one thing in common – they care deeply about supporting women to grow and make positive change in their lives. We have various volunteer roles available, including drop-in support, craft activities support, course facilitators, admin’, social media, events organisers and more. We offer a thorough induction for new volunteers, a buddy system and ongoing training opportunities, all helping to ensure our volunteers feel supported and valued. We also invite our whole volunteer team to our monthly shared supper and meeting. Kyra supports women who may be emotionally vulnerable or who are looking for help to improve their well-being. Our members might be struggling with confidence or self-esteem following a period of difficulty, may be in recovery from addiction or from domestic abuse, managing mental health difficulties, including anxiety and depression, rebuilding their lives following loss or bereavement, or may simply want to feel less socially isolated… in fact, there is no typical woman who accesses Kyra’s services – every woman is unique. Kyra offers a variety of courses, drop-ins, creative classes, counselling, alternative therapies, access to financial and legal advice – our range of services continues to grow year on year. Due to the nature of the support Kyra gives, all volunteers need DBS clearance. Volunteer applications are restricted to women due to the nature of the volunteer roles. The Occupational Requirement under Schedule 9 (part 1) of the Equality Act 2010 applies.
