Domestic Incident Volunteer for STRIVE with Talk, Listen, Change - Trafford & Salford

Opportunity Provider: Talk, Listen, Change

Talk, Listen, Change - Manchester Volunteer

Would you like a volunteering role that offers structure, progression and is a little different? STRIVE is a Greater Manchester initiative designed to reduce police call-outs and support families where there may be domestic disruption. STRIVE volunteers visit the homes of these families and support them, offering early intervention and signposting them to relevant services within the community that may be able to help.

TLC: Talk, Listen, Change is Manchester’s own relationships charity and has been responsible for providing this service successfully in Trafford for 18 months. We are now expanding this service into Salford and are recruiting for volunteers in both areas.

What’s the role?

Alongside another experienced volunteer, you will be visiting the homes of families who have previously been visited by the police, due to a low level domestic incident where no crime has been logged. We consider this role to be all about empowering people: the people we visit and the volunteers who are visiting them (that’s you!). Main duties include:

  • To visit the home with the intention of understanding the source of conflict
  • Supporting families and sign posting them to relevant support services and agencies
  • To log in and out of the timekeeping hub
  • To report back to the STRIVE Project Manager on the visit
