Maytree is currently recruiting Volunteer Befrienders with the empathy and understanding necessary to support individuals in suicidal crisis.
Based at our house in North London, our Volunteers engage with potential guests by phone and email and also spend face-to-face time listening and offering warmth, acceptance and understanding to those staying with us. It’s a challenging role for which we train people. It’s also profoundly rewarding work, providing experiences and fostering skills that enrich the personal and professional lives of our volunteers.
‘As a volunteer at Maytree I have met people with little hope and trust in life. It is beautiful to see how that can change during a short stay here, and to feel part of that process’. Susanne
Maytree asks potential volunteers to work with us for at least a year and to agree to cover a minimum of four 3.5 hour shifts per month plus one sleepover. The house is open 24/7 and our volunteers are able to choose the time slots that suit them.
If you would like to join the extraordinary people who make our work possible please email email@example.com or call 0207 272 6863 for an application form. Most applicants are invited for interview and if accepted as Volunteers will be subject to a DBS check.
