Volunteering Opportunities

Volunteer Opportunity:


Would you like to help us improve the lives of women, children and young people who experience domestic abuse in East Ayrshire? Do you have a willingness to learn, share your skills and work as part of a team? If the answer to these questions is yes, then you might be interested in becoming a Director of East Ayrshire Women’s Aid.
This is an exciting opportunity to become part of a team delivering vital support to vulnerable women, children and young people in East Ayrshire. You do not need to know everything there is to know about domestic abuse but we do need to know that you are reliable and committed to our principles and values.
The position is voluntary but we will provide you with training and support and pay your expenses. We meet at least five times a year, usually on Saturday mornings.
Under Section 9 of the Equality Act 2010, only women are eligible to apply. We welcome applications from women from all sections of the community.
