About this event

Volunteering with 50808 is a fantastic opportunity to give something back. As a volunteer, you will support and listen to people who text in through our online platform at times that suit you. Being there to listen to someone who is having a tough time or experiencing a mental health challenge is a great thing to do.

In our 'Volunteering with 50808' webinar, we chat through some of the common questions that people have:

  • Training - we talk through the extensive training that our volunteers receive, and how easy it is to access the training online at times that suit your schedule
  • Our Volunteers - 50808 attracts volunteers from all walks of life, from pensioners to psychology students. We go through the experiences of some of our volunteers
  • Volunteering Online - we explain how volunteering and training online with us works, and how volunteers can pick times that suit their schedules
  • Supporting Volunteers - all of our volunteers are supported throughout by our team. We explain how the supervision process works
  • The Commitment - we talk through the commitment we ask of our volunteers, while explaining how volunteering with 50808 is hugely flexible and works around your schedule
  • Our Texters - we discuss the kind of people our service supports, and the kind of conversations you will be listening to as a volunteer with 50808
  • How to Apply - interested in volunteering with 50808? We guide you through the process
  • Talk to our Team - if you would like to talk to our team, our webinar is a great chance to ask them any questions you might have.

"The reason I became a crisis volunteer is because I believe nobody should feel like they have to suffer in silence. I wanted to be part of this amazing team of caring, selfless people who want to be a listening ear to those who feel like they have none"
