As a charity we rely on volunteers to help us deliver our service in Tyneside and Northumberland.

Our volunteers help with activism, campaigns and events.  Women also volunteer with us to deliver direct services to women who have experienced sexual violence.  After full training volunteers deliver our helpline, email support and new practical and emotional support service.

We are also looking for women to support with our office based roles.

We are not able to support counselling placements or have volunteers as part of our counselling team.

Women interested in volunteering with us should read the About Us page which includes information about the mission of RCTN and a statement on our feminism.
