Volunteer Psychological Support Workers Needed

We are currently recruiting female Psychological Support Workers for our Autumn Training (from which a panel may be formed).

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. 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?

If so, please see our Information Pack for further details.

If you feel you are suitable for this role and this role is suitable for you, please complete the Application Form ASAP and send it as a word or PDF document by email ONLY to training[at]grcc,ie.

In the interim, at the same email address, we will be happy to answer any questions or queries you may have.
