GRASAC has dedicated, trained and experienced volunteers both receiving calls on our helpline and delivering face to face support sessions across the county. GRASAC would not be able to meet the needs of survivors without volunteers and they play an integral part of what we provide.
We are not currently looking to recruit for any new volunteers in 2017, and due to the amount of interest we have had this year, we are fully booked for our training in Spring 2018. We will be recruiting again in Summer 2018.
Members of the Board of Trustees:
GRASAC is governed by women who volunteer their time, skills and knowledge to ensure the safe, effective and sustainable running of the organisation. Trustees are inducted onto the committee over several months with guidance from the Co-Chairs. GRASAC’s trustees meet on an evening on a bi-monthly basis, and offer advice, guidance and other skills as and when the organisation requires.
GRASAC particularly welcomes applications from women with experience of working within the violence against women and girls sector (although this is not necessary). We would especially welcome applications from women who have legal expertise and women who have media experience and knowledge, although we will be happy to take applications from women whose skill set is outside of these areas.
** Please note GRASAC is committed to recruiting volunteers in a manner which promotes equality of opportunity, is open and fair and results in a high quality of people volunteering for us. We actively seek volunteers from all sections of Gloucestershire’s communities and strive to be representative of the people we serve
