The Listening Place is a volunteer-led charity aiming to transform how we support people who feel suicidal. Our trained volunteers are part of a team delivering face-to-face, confidential, ongoing support to thousands of people each year. They help create the warm and welcoming environment that encourages people struggling with suicidal thoughts and feelings to talk openly without being judged or given advice.

Helping volunteers are central to each shift as they meet and greet our visitors and support the listening volunteers on shift. For this varied role, we are recruiting volunteers who have the empathy to greet distressed visitors, the willingness to undertake a variety of admin and other tasks and the resilience to support their team. Our helping volunteers need to be proactive, self-starters and team players with a basic understanding of IT who are able to commit to a regular, weekly four-hour shift.
