Become a volunteer

You can make a difference and volunteer for one of our life changing projects.

We have a variety of volunteering opportunities in each of our services: 


Our Outreach teams go out twice a week in the evenings supporting women engaged in sex work in Stockton and Middlesbrough with a chat, a cup of tea and help and advice on keeping safe and accessing support. 

Our Youth team run sessions in schools around relationships and personal safety. 

We hope to start running Youth Outreach sessions in the community shortly and will need volunteers to support this.
