Would you like to volunteer with SYCLS?

Volunteer with us

Full training is given for all our volunteering roles. We are interested in people with good people skills, an empathic response to those in crisis, an aptitude for empowering listening and able to give a couple of hours regularly. Our chaplains also need a faith that inspires them to want to serve and support others, and an additional reference from church leadership.

Volunteering roles

Listeners to visit workplaces on a pre-agreed basis, providing 1-1 listening appointments.

Chaplains to build ongoing relationships with an organisation. We want to inspire churches to see that they have a role to play in supporting and serving local workplaces across the sectors and in a range of contexts.

Well-being Ambassadors to be non-clinical buddies, supporting people within crisis intervention centres, listening, providing hospitality and addressing holistic needs.

I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to volunteer with SYCLS, it has been amazing. And thank you for all the training you have given me, it’s been life changing and very beneficial for me and my future. It’s a passion of mine and I wouldn’t have found it without all your help.
