Get Involved; Become a Helpline Volunteer

We are proud to share that in 2015/2016 the SARAC Volunteer Team won the Volunteer Star Awards from Support Staffordshire in recognition of their valuable contribution and commitment to supporting survivors of sexual abuse. In 2017, SARAC also received a special recognition award.
More recently in 2021 we won The Queens Award for Voluntary Service and in 2022 the Staffordshire High Sheriff’s Award.

Due to the nature of our work, volunteering can be challenging at times, but it is an extremely rewarding experience. Our services rely greatly on committed volunteers in order to provide a consistent service to survivors of sexual abuse.

Why Volunteer?

There are endless reasons why people volunteer. Here is what our volunteers have told us; they do it:

  • To gain life skills and experience;
  • To be part of a good cause;
  • To enhance their CV and job prospects;
  • To make a valuable contribution to the lives of others (the feeling is like no other); and/or
  • Because it has been recommended as being a great place to volunteer.
