Volunteer Psychological Support Workers Needed

Our team of Psychological Support Workers provide much needed advocacy and psychological support to survivors in the immediate aftermath of a sexual assault/ rape. This is a 24/7 call out service provided by Galway Rape Crisis Centre within the Galway Sexual Assault Treatment Unit.

Psychological Support Workers are on call 3 shifts per month and commit to a minimum of 2 years service. Please note that the role of the Psychological Support Worker is NOT a counselling role, but one of providing crucial advocacy and psychological support.

This service would not exist without the incredible Volunteers that give so freely of their valuable time. Would you like to work as part of our dynamic team whilst receiving excellent support and supervision?

Do you want to support survivors and make a difference?

There is a training underway starting October 2018. Currently there is no date available for when the next training will take place. Please check the website where new dates will be announced first.

In the interim, please see our Information Pack (for download below) which contains a lot of information on the role and the recruitment process. If you have any questions after reading the pack, we can be contacted at training[at]galwayrcc.ie and will be delighted to be of help.


Looking forward to hearing from you.
