What is the role of a SATU support worker?

Please note that the role of the support worker is NOT a counselling role, but one of providing crucial psychological support preventing or limiting dissociation and re-traumatisation.
Volunteer support workers work as part of a team, receiving excellent support and supervision. They are on call for three shifts a month and respond to call-outs as appropriate.
