Volunteer with us

Due to increasing demand for our services, we are looking for new energetic and caring volunteers to join our award-winning team.

Can you spare 3 hours per week? Are you compassionate, wanting to give back to your community or looking for practical knowledge?

We offer tailored supervision, a fantastic support network and a superb training programme. The position is ideal for anyone wanting to share their own life skills and experiences to work as part of a passionate and committed team.

A Word

From Our CEO

It is my pleasure and honour to be heading up this wonderful charity.  Along with a passionate and determined team, our volunteers strive to ensure that we provide a compassionate and practical service to some of the most disadvantaged and vulnerable members of our community.

Our Doula service is second to none operating 24/7 support to pregnant women and post-birth whilst our Rapha listening service continues to help to improve the mental wellbeing of our service users. We are making an indelible impact in this city. Thank you for helping me to make Bethel Health and Healing Network better.

Testimonials and Impact

We are proud of the support and services that we provide.

Rapha Testimonial
‘Sometimes you can’t say things to people in fear that things may be said about you or other people will be told, but I was able to share here’

Rapha Listening Service User

Doula Testimonial

‘It’s good to have someone with you during the labour and everything because it’s really hard to be alone’

Bethel Doula Service User

Volunteer Testimonial

“I am so grateful to Bethel Health and Healing Network for the opportunity they gave me for volunteering.  After less than a year I was able to secure a job as a counsellor working with very vulnerable women living with domestic abuse and I have been recently promoted to be a team leader.  This would definitely not have happened without the support of Bethel who provided me with training and supported me with my volunteering.  I cannot recommend them enough.  If you have been thinking about volunteering this is the organisation that you will love.”

Staff Testimonial

“I am so proud to belong to this team, making a difference to these women and their families lives. Honoured to share in their labours and births and the baby cuddles are never refused. It’s not always a happy story but we can make it an easier one”
