Student Counsellors on a placement - 2 roles (brief and longer-term)

Thank you to everyone who applied for this role. We will be in touch shortly about interviews.


Admin Volunteer

We are looking for a volunteer to help out with admin tasks including filing of case paperwork and inputting new referrals. We are looking for someone who could ideally help out for 1 day a week and who is computer literate and can work on their own initiative although we will train the right person.

This role would be ideal for someone looking to gain work experience/skills with a view to returning to work or equally for someone who has finished work and would like to give something back. If you would like more information please contact us on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


Contribution made by volunteers

We greatly value the contribution made by volunteers to the success of the organisation.  Volunteering has been an integral part of Community Counselling long before the term 'Big Society' was termed.  A significant proportion of client sessions are now delivered by volunteers. Our volunteers include qualified counsellors who are working towards professional accreditation. Additionally, the good administration of the service is dependent on volunteering. 

The reasons why people volunteer are many, including a desire to 'give something back', to complete the practical element of a training course and to gain new skills and experience - and the confidence - to re-enter (or to enter for the first time) the workplace.  Contact us if you are interested in volunteering or fundraising for Community Counselling or contact CAVCA to find out more about a wide range of other volunteering opportunities.
