Volunteer and Placements
Volunteers and placements have a vital role to play in the ongoing success of the Women’s Counselling and Therapy Service. Every year, our work touches the lives of women and their families in every part of Leeds. When women get better through therapy with us, this has a cascading effect on every area of their lives including their parenting, relationships, social life, work life and ability to cope from day-to-day.
Our volunteers and placements make a real and valuable contribution by giving their time, skills and passion to further this charitable work.
Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 we are unable to offer volunteering and placement opportunities at the moment.
Thank you for your interest. Please do check back – we will post any upcoming volunteer or placement vacancies here.
