Listening Ear is very grateful for the time, commitment and talents of its volunteers. Currently 22 volunteers provide an incredible 240 hours of support to community members in need each month. Volunteers give time to Listening Ear for different reasons for example:

Emma, "I want to volunteer to support a valuable free service and be a part of a reputable, professional and caring team".

Clare, "I volunteer because the potential outcomes of the therapeutic relationship astound me".

Andrea, "I  volunteer to give people access to free counselling who otherwise wouldn't get help".

Listening Ear sees its volunteering pathway as mutually beneficial. We support our volunteers in the same way we support our staff with regular line-management, access to CPD opportunities and free monthly clinical supervision.

Volunteering within Listening Ear provides experience of working within a BACP accredited busy and successful mental health organisation. We offer the highest quality assurances in regards to your placement. In return, volunteers help Listening Ear to fulfil its vision of delivering more free support services, to more people in need, in more places.
