New opportunities for 2021!
Volunteering at Juno has always been an essential part of what we do, unfortunately, the Global Pandemic in 2020 put a stop to ur volunteer development work. As we look towards a brighter future, we are starting a new volunteer recruitment drive, and our exclusive Volunteer Training and Development Courses at Juno start September 2021!
Volunteer with us and you’ll be part of a skilled and dedicated team making a real difference to the lives of women, children, and teenagers, across many teams in both Nottingham city and the county. Roles and opportunities are varied, from frontline roles with women, supporting children and families, assisting on the Helpline, or even the back office work that keeps the cogs turning such as Marketing, Finance and Administration – we are hopeful you will find the right path for you.
Juno was started by a group of women volunteers and volunteering remains central to our ethos. Many of our staff started out as volunteers, including some of our most senior management team and we are committed to ensuring our volunteers pave the way for the next generation of Juno Women's Aid.
Our volunteers are essential and we couldn’t do what we do without them. Giving your time helps us to make our support go further and it can help you too. Volunteers are the future of the workforce at Juno Women’s Aid and volunteering serves as a platform for jobs at Juno, providing you with training and that much-needed experience to get your foot on the ladder of a fantastic, new career.
If you’re looking for an opportunity to build skills and confidence, add to your professional development, or try your hand in a new workforce, we would love to hear from you. Whether you have experience as a survivor yourself*, knowledge from university and employment, or a passion as a feminist to make a difference then get in touch.
All our volunteers are trained on our free, mandatory, 8-week training course. The courses operate throughout the year and we try to meet a range of availabilities and times.
You will be supported through inductions, meetings and supervisions, as well as a chance to shadow work across all the teams at Juno.

*Please note that we believe survivors of domestic abuse make great and valued members of the volunteer and staff team, however you must have been “out” of service with Juno for at least 12 months from the start of the course. Don’t fret though, because we would still love to hear from you, we are looking to start a Survivors Voices programme that can lead into volunteering, please drop us an email to find out more.
"Becoming a volunteer at Juno Women's Aid was such an exciting, rewarding and positive experience. As a volunteer, you are given an opportunity to support staff as they in turn support women and children who have experienced or who are currently experiencing Domestic Abuse.
My time as a volunteer helped me gain invaluable knowledge and experience and I am now supporting women and children as a paid worker within the County SASS team." Ruth, former Juno volunteer
