Volunteers are the life blood of our charity and without their commitment and time we would not be able to achieve all that we do.

If you feel passionately about supporting people affected by abuse, then we would be delighted to hear from you. We offer you training, on-going support and supervision and have a wide range of roles available so you can support our services in a way that suits you.


Helpline Volunteers: Clean Slate is currently supporting Survivors Trust with their confidential helpline service to victims/survivors of rape and sexual abuse. Helpline volunteers aim is to support victims/survivors of rape and sexual abuse by providing a safe space to talk and share their feelings and needs; by providing information and signposting to other relevant organisations/services.

Available Shifts

Thursdays – 10am-12.30pm, 1.30pm – 4.30pm and 6pm-8.30pm.



Volunteer Counsellor – Placement (Telephone and Video Counselling)

Part-time, Volunteer

Post: Volunteer Counsellor – Blended Working (Telephone and Video Counselling)

Are you a counsellor in training (at any point in your study)? Seeking a placement to provide voluntary services during COVID-19 and beyond, to adult survivors of abuse.

Clean Slate is seeking to increase its team of volunteers providing trauma informed counselling to adult survivors of abuse. Despite the challenges of COVID-19, Clean Slate have successfully adapted to the requirement to transition to digital services, and have been able to win funding to provide counsellors with the right technology and training to ensure that survivors can continue to access Clean Slates support and services.

You will be provided with the technology, training, and clinical supervision, to enable you to play your part in a dedicated and active team of volunteers.

Your location and proximity to travel to the Upper Heyford is something to consider, as although this is a blended role that will begin working across digital services, there will be the opportunity to transition to face to face working when our outpost centres re-open.


Key Responsibilities:

  • To provide weekly ongoing counselling, and regularly review their counselling work during supervision, and incorporate Clean Slates outcome monitoring tools.

  • To maintain confidential, up to date and accurate records of all counselling sessions, carefully considering the sensitive nature of this work regarding statutory investigations and court proceedings.

  • To ensure that all service activity is recorded and inputted appropriately onto the database.

  • To attend in-house and external training to support the role

  • To engage with Clean Slates line management and clinical supervision arrangements

  • To maintain up to date knowledge of relevant legislation and clinical practice guidelines to contribute to the highest professional standards of counselling practice

  • To continuously work towards and support your development of best practice in the area of specialised trauma informed counselling.

  • To maintain membership and be a Registered Member of B.A.C.P. or other suitable professional body
