Volunteer with us in West Sussex
In West Sussex we are committed to using volunteer staff in all areas of the addiction services we run. We have bases in Chichester, Worthing, Bognor, Crawley and Haywards Heath. We work with both drug and alcohol problems as well as offering some services targeted at young people.
Following successful completion of the application process, we offer a nine-day induction training programme and access to a wide and challenging range of team based placements across the service, most of which involve direct client contact. Anyone over 18 can apply and you will be sent an information pack and application form.
We also run a counselling service staffed entirely by volunteer counsellors, who are recruited from counselling diploma training courses in the area. We offer access to suitable clients and accredited supervision in return for their time.
We hope that volunteers will offer at least one day each week following training. While not all volunteers are looking for paid work we have had considerable success in helping experienced volunteers apply for paid employment. We run three intakes each year, each with 12 places.
