Like many voluntary organisations, Noah’s Ark depends on a group of dedicated volunteers, without whom a lot of our services would not be possible. Noah’s Ark has number of exciting voluntary work opportunities.
We offer placements to counselling students who need to do 100 hours (or more) counselling hours placement. We will not be recruiting before September 2021, when we will update this page with information on how to apply.
Noah’s Ark Centre is looking for a substantial number of new counsellors/therapists to volunteer within our Children and Young People’s Service to deliver Therapeutic Play and Counselling to children and young people aged 5-15yrs.
Noah’s Ark Centre has a long-established reputation for supporting volunteer counsellors and therapists to develop their skills and gain valuable experience in supporting children and young people therapeutically. The area of children and young people’s emotional health and wellbeing is an area of great need and we greatly value the contribution of our volunteers in working with us to support this need.
We are pleased, after a difficult year coordinating this service, to be able to continue supporting CYP moving forward. We are supported in covering the costs involved in delivering this service over the next year, through an award from Calderdale Council’s Supporting Stonger Neighbourhood’s Grant fund for 2021. This includes the recruitment and support of our Volunteer Counsellors/Therapists for this service – particularly enabling us to initially provide our training/CPD course for free to counsellors and therapists this year who are committing to volunteer for us within this service.
Considerations, criteria and commitment required of our volunteer counsellors/therapists wishing to apply to volunteer within our CYP’s service:
This course will run 4th, 5th and 6th August 2021. Please contact Natalie at email@example.com for more details and attach your CV if you are interested.
Our Rainbows volunteers are vital to the delivery of the Rainbows peer support programme for children aged 4-10 who are experiencing loss, such as bereavement, parental separation or family breakdown. The groups are run at a number of sites across Calderdale, on a termly basis.
We ask that you commit to helping at Rainbows one afternoon a week during term-time, for at least a year.
