We’ve recently been contacted by The National Self Harm Network who are looking for Nottingham-based volunteers to help man their new national freephone helpline for those who self harm, their friends, family and carers.

It is initially operating between the hours of 7pm and 11pm seven days a week. They require volunteers to commit to one shift per week. Volunteers will receive extensive training from both NSHN and external partners. The helpline is well supervised. All travel expenses within the Nottingham area will be refunded.

Volunteers will be asked to attend an informal interview and recruitment day prior to being offered a place. All volunteers will be required to provide an enhanced Criminal Records Bureau check which will be paid for by NSHN.¬†As well as listening volunteers they’re also looking to recruit several volunteer supervisors who will be required to have undergone previous relevant training.

If you think you have what it takes to offer a supportive and empathetic listening ear to individuals who may be in crisis and can commit some of your time then they’d like to hear from you.

For further information and an application form for all posts please contact the NSHN on or phone 01158 524027 and leave your name, number and email address.
