Interested in becoming an OSARCC volunteer?


Helpline volunteers

Are you an empathetic and empowered woman with good listening skills and a commitment to ending sexual violence?  Are you willing to give 12 hours a month to provide invaluable emotional and practical support for survivors in line with our core values?  We regularly recruit new volunteers for our helpline and email support services.  No previous experience is required as full training will be provided, but volunteers must have a good level of English and be able to be involved for a minimum of 18 months.

Applications are not currently open but we will be running a new round of recruitment shortly.


Volunteer counsellor placements - currently open

We are currently looking for qualified counsellors or those in their 3rd year of a BACP (or equivalent) accredited diploma and above to provide support through our new face-to-face counselling service. Full training in supporting survivors of sexual violence is provided. Committed volunteers are required to give between 12 - 18 hours of time per month, for at least 18 months and have 50 hours worth of counselling experience. 

The next training commences in October 2017. Please contact recruitment@osarcc.org.uk for more information. 



Fundraising volunteers

We provide the only specialist services in the Oxfordshire area for female survivors of rape and sexual abuse. Our fundraising volunteers are vital to ensuring we can raise the funds we need to maintain the delivery of those services, as well as to ensuring that as many women and girls as possible know how to access them.

We are looking for proactive women able to assist with OSARCC-organised events, as well as plan and run their own events in conjunction with the staff team.  Fundraising volunteers must also be able to attend our fundraising sub group which meets every other month on a Wednesday evening.  Opportunities to undertake other forms of volunteering will also be advertised to fundraising volunteers when these become available. Hours are flexible and the role can be tailored to fit around your other commitments. 


Admin volunteers

We sometimes have space for volunteers who wish to support our administrative work, either with ongoing tasks or discrete projects.



Trustees oversee OSARCC's work and help ensure we meet our statutory obligations, as well as continue with our strategic growth.
