Rape Crisis North East is offering you the opportunity to attend a Helpline Training Programme which will commence on Wednesday September 13 and finish on Friday October 19. The training is free and in return, RCNE will ask you to commit to four hours of your time per week to provide telephone counselling support to survivors of rape and sexual violence.
The training will take place at Cherrywood Counselling Centre, Great Northern Distillery Offices, Rape Crisis North East, Carrick Road, and will involve 12 Day Workshops over weeks (Wednesdays and Thursdays).
RCNE Helpline Service is a “lifeline” for many victims of rape and sexual abuse who need to talk to someone who cares. All our telephone volunteers are trained to listen, support and offer information and counselling support to callers who use the line.
If you would like to become a helpline volunteer, please contact Rape Crisis North East and we will forward to you a Helpline Application Form. Phone: 042 – 9339491 / 1800 21 21 22 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, please visit our website: www.rcne.ie and download an application form.
Closing date for accepting applications has been extended to Friday August 25 before 5pm.
Applicants must be at least 25 years of age.
