With Us

Let's work together to support survivors and prevent abuse

Yellow Door offers a range of volunteering opportunities suitable for all backgrounds, skill sets & interests.

Join a compassionate and dedicated team to combat and respond to abuse across western Hampshire, and unlock an array of developmental opportunities as you go.

 

Why volunteer with Yellow Door?

Volunteers have always played a key role in the services we provide, and continue to be crucial to the support we offer. Each member of the Yellow Door team works together to make a difference to the lives of children, young people, women, men and families across western Hampshire.

At Yellow Door, we offer all our volunteers a unique opportunity to participate in our Volunteers Training Programme, which provides a comprehensive insight into the ins and outs of working with issues around domestic and sexual abuse. 

We always do our best to ensure that volunteering opportunities are as flexible as they can be, and we are happy to talk through enquiries from those seeking a commitment of a few hours a month, to those looking for full-time placements.

"[My expectations of the training] were met over and beyond. It went deeper than the facts - I looked at myself and questioned my thoughts."

"I found [my mentor] approachable, warm, funny, but always professional. Sharing her experience has been invaluable."

 

How can I help?

We believe that everyone has a role to play in tackling sexual and domestic abuse. Supporting Yellow Door's work by volunteering your time and skills is just one way you can get involved.

What can I expect?

Volunteers at Yellow Door can expect to join a friendly team passionate about alleviating the impacts of domestic and sexual abuse. As a well-established and respected charity, our team has extensive knowledge and expertise in working with these issues and will be there to offer you guidance and support throughout.

We work hard to provide volunteers with a supportive environment, and the opportunity to gain experience and develop skills in areas that matches their interests. As well as ongoing support, and personal development sessions, volunteers will also have access to in-house staff training days and other opportunities.

We ask that all volunteers wishing to offer direct support to service users (i.e. through helpline or counselling) complete our Volunteers Training Programme, which is generally 10 days of comprehensive specialist training run over a number of weeks throughout the year.

All counselling volunteers at Yellow Door also receive in-house clinical supervision.
