Volunteer Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in getting involved with the London Abused Women’s Centre. Due to COVID-19 restrictions and safety measurements we currently do not have any volunteer positions available within our agency. However, there are still ways you can get involved:

During the COVID-19 pandemic many women and girls find themselves isolated with their abuser. Please reach out to your colleagues, friends and family members if you believe they may be abused. Ask if that is the case. If so, believe them and offer support. Help them find services that can assist them in a safe manner.

We are using our social media platforms to stay in touch with the community. You can help us spread current information by following us on our social media and sharing our posts.
