Wanted : More Helpline Volunteers

Call for More Helpline Volunteers

HVOY

Demand for our Helpline has been growing and we need more people to get involved. FNF's telephone Helpline is a vital first point of contact with the charity for many parents struggling to see their children after a relationship breakdown. Volunteers offer emotional support and information about the charity and other resources. Knowledge of the family court system is a bonus - but not essential. More important are patience, compassion, and an understanding of the benefits to children of close relationships with both parents. We will arrange Helplines training for those willing to make the commitment. The work itself can be done from home.

We ask our volunteers to cover the phone line one evening a week from 6-10pm. It's valuable work and often very fulfilling. If you would like to help, please contact our office on 0300 0300 110, or email admin@fnf.org.uk.

Last year, one long-standing FNF Helpline volunteer, Pauline Green, won the Helplines Partnership Volunteer of the Year 2018 Award. You can read Pauline’s story of how she came to be involved here.

Thank you to everyone who responded to our last call for Helpline Volunteers. One or two new people joined us. Some considered it, but decided they could not commit at the time, if your circumstances have changed, please get in touch again.
