Volunteer for
The Listening Place

We are committed to welcoming people from all backgrounds and communities, and creating inclusive teams.

Our aim is to relieve the suffering of adults from suicidal feelings. We rely on trained volunteers to provide this vital confidential service.

We need warm, empathetic, caring and resilient individuals who want to help others and have the time to offer ongoing, non-judgmental, face-to-face support.

TLP is a special organisation. The volunteers are some of the kindest, most thoughtful and devoted people I’ve had the pleasure to spend time with. Everybody is united, under the goal of helping others and I feel part of a wonderful community. I always look forward to going on shift and catching up with the other volunteers.

A Volunteer

The HV role is vital.
It is the first in-person contact a visitor has with The Listening Place. I pride myself on trying to deliver the most unpressurised, warm welcome anyone can give and show the level of care and attention a visitor will receive while with us.

A Volunteer

It means the world to me, knowing that this level of care exists; like a super hope for the world but actually being a part of it. Seeing and being a part of a force for good, making friends, gave me something worthwhile to do and reignited my faith in humanity. That's why I HV.
