Volunteering

There are 5 generic headings for volunteering 
  • LEGAL AID HELP
  • RESEARCH
  • ADVICE
  • EMOTIONAL SUPPORT
  • MARKETING & ADMINISTRATION
LEGAL AID HELP - this is a new functional area where volunteers help us to obtain the 'Evidence' required to qualify for Legal Aid in Private Law. This is a really good role for Law students as it will involve some client liaison but also working with solicitors to ensure that they have the right information about potential clients.
RESEARCH - another new functional area - we are recruiting individuals who have detailed or specialist knowledge of family law issues OR are prepared to undertake directed research tasks such as creating case studies, driving up responses to research surveys etc. Most of this work will tie in with the new initiative we are launching through a website entitled 'Family Law Research'. You can read more about this on this website under the Research tab on our home page.   
ADVICE Role Description we're looking for professionals eg solicitors, barristers, advice workers etc for this area. We will also consider students studying in specialist areas eg law / social work / counselling etc 

EMOTIONAL SUPPORT - Role Description - we need these volunteers to keep in touch with those parents and grandparents who come to us for help to ensure that they remain engaged with us so we can help them.

MARKETING & ADMIN Role Description -

  • Fundraising - such as collections at supermarkets / putting collecting boxes into local convenience stores / organising sponsored walks, runs, swims, football matches etc
  • Taking responsibility for paperwork and statistics at meetings
  • Uploading information to our secure website
  • Putting up posters / delivering flyers to promote our services
  • Writing press releases and getting those into the media
  • Fundraising - have you noticed we've put this twice!? That's because we have no volunteers at the moment who have this function as their primary volunteer committment - so this is YOUR chance to make a huge difference to the charity
