Become an Oasis volunteer

Every minute you give as an Oasis volunteer has a powerful, lasting impact on survivors of domestic abuse.

Whether it’s to learn new skills, build on what you’re great at already, gain experience for a new career, have something to do or champion human rights, your gift of time helps us to do more.

A couple of hours or days, a one-off or a regular arrangement – you choose when you volunteer.

Here are just some of the ways you can volunteer:
In our charity shop
As a peer mentor for our Blossom Project
At our fundraising events
By raising awareness about domestic abuse support
By becoming an Employer Champion
Take a look at our volunteering roles below and if you think you can help, we’d love to hear from you.

Blossom Project

Our Blossom peer mentor project supports those that have lived with domestic abuse to volunteer and gain personal and professional development. By becoming a mentor, you can build your confidence and skills as well as helping other to do the same.

Event Volunteering

We hold a number of fundraising events throughout the year, from our annual golf day to author events, auctions and challenges. The more people that can help us, the more we can achieve and more funds we can raise for our charity. Tasks within our Fundraising team are varied, fun and there’s something for everyone.

Please contact us if you’d like to join the fundraising team in organizing events. We’ll let you know when there is an event coming up, and you can decide if you’d like to help out with it.

Raise awareness

We believe that it’s everybody’s business to know, see and speak out about domestic abuse. You can help, by learning more about domestic abuse and helping us to raise awareness. You can do this by becoming an Employer Champion, signing up for our newsletter and following us on social media @oasisdomesticabuseservice and liking and sharing our content.

The more people that raise their voices, the more survivors can be seen, heard and signposted to safety.
