All of our volunteer opportunities are:
Fully flexible: No minimum or maximum number of volunteering hours required. Your volunteering commitments at GINA can change over time to suit your changing needs & other commitments.
Suitable for everyone: Whether you’re a student looking to gain experience, have skills or expertise you could bring to GINA or if you’re looking to get involved with a cause you’re passionate about alongside your day job, we’d love to hear from you!
Open for individuals with lived experience: We welcome volunteers who have lived experience of sexual harassment, violence & abuse; we centre & value lived experience among our team to ensure we can best support other individuals subjected to sexual trauma.
our offer to you
we also offer internships & placements for students via our partnership with the University of Birmingham & Birmingham City University.
GINA believes that lived experience is central to everything that we do.
We are committed to ensuring that individuals subjected to sexual violence & abuse are involved at every level of our organisation. Therefore, we welcome applications from individuals with lived experience of sexual trauma so we can work together to amplify voices throughout GINA & unite in lived experience to ensure the needs, wishes & views of individuals subjected to sexual trauma remain at the centre of all we do.
what's it like to volunteer at GINA?
"I've loved volunteering at GINA because everyone is so lovely, easy to get along with and super helpful. It's been a great way to meet a range of amazing women from many different backgrounds and work on some great projects together. Volunteering for GINA has provided me a great basis for experience while working for something so worthwhile and rewarding."
a 'thank you' to our volunteers
We have partnered with Room to Reward to offer a special 'thank you' to our volunteers at GINA HQ. Every year, we can nominate a volunteer (who has been with us for over a year) for the opportunity to have a free hotel break (& to bring a plus one!). Room to Reward partners with hotels up & down the country (everything from The Savoy to family run B&Bs) that donate their unsold rooms for volunteers working with non-profits. We know the incredible difference our volunteers make.
