Help Us

DONATE

Every penny we receive goes directly towards the delivery of frontline services. Your donation, no matter how big or small, will help change the life of a survivor. By making a single donation, or by setting up a regular contribution, you can become part of something that really does make a difference.

We have different ways of making donations to SOS, so if you would like to help us help others, please send us a message via our general enquiry form.

VOLUNTEERING

At SOS we are always happy to accept a helping hand. Our strength lies in our people and the unique skills and experience they bring to the table.

We would love to hear from anyone who can help us deliver our front-line services by devoting their time on a regular basis; and those with specialist skills or services who can support us on an ad-hoc basis (e.g. IT specialists, legal experts, web-developers, accountants).

At present, we are looking for people to join our board and help steer the organisation as we move forward. If this role is of interest to you, please get in touch now.

SERVICE DELIVERY

SOS work in the heart of our communities, educating, raising awareness about childhood sexual abuse and directly helping those who struggle with day-to-day activities. Volunteers can help in a range of areas, from greeting clients at our offices, to actively taking part in the delivery of services such as our Advocacy, Outreach and Befriending programs. SOS will provide any necessary training and support you fully in developing your role and skills. If you feel you could make a difference, get in touch now.

PROJECTS

SOS are committed to a process of continuous improvement in all areas of the organisation, and we are always keen to explore new ideas, technology and opportunities. In previous projects, we have worked with volunteers from a diverse range of backgrounds, including areas such as marketing, business development and computer programming.

If you have any ideas that would benefit the organisation or have a specific set of skills that would enhance our team, you could help improve the lives of so many and we would be delighted to hear from you.

PROFESSIONAL SERVICES

At SOS, our resources are very much limited and we welcome support from professional organisations.  In the past, we have benefited a range of donations including pro-bono legal advice, computer hardware, office furniture, training, health and safety advice, and software licenses. Every penny saved on services helps us provide more support for survivors. To donate or offer support, click here.

SURVIVORS

As part of our holistic approach to recovery and following discharge from therapy, we support any client who wants to ‘give something back’ and help others.  For those employed, volunteering can be very fulfilling and may involve simply facilitating peer-to-peer groups on a weekly basis. For those who are unemployed, we recommend more regular roles in which we help develop the skills and confidence needed to enter the jobs market.  Ultimately, we want our clients to develop their self-esteem and find meaning in life by helping them plan for the future, achieve their goals, fulfill their true potential and contribute positively to society.
