Kairos Women Working Together (WWT) believes in the value and dignity of all women. They aim to support, empower, and give a voice to women at risk of or subject to sexual exploitation, including those caught up in sex work, and those aspiring to leave it. They work in Coventry by providing safe spaces, a listening ear and opportunities for change and growth.
We have 5 current voluntary roles available:
1) Donations Co-ordinator – To assess what donations are needed for Kairos WWT’s services, update social media on the donations needed, to arrange donation collections/drop-offs, and to sort through donations given (required 2 hours a week)
2) Outreach and Drop-In Volunteer – supporting women caught up in street-based prostitution, offering them necessities such as food, condoms, clothes, toiletries and harm reduction items (required for 1 in 4 Wednesdays from 7:30-10:00pm)
3) Feeling Safe Group Volunteer – supporting vulnerable women between the ages of 18-24, who have been, or are at risk of sexual exploitation and/or prostitution (required on a weekly or fortnightly basis on Tuesdays from 1:30-4:00pm)
4) Feeling Safe Community Awareness Raising Volunteer – supporting the Feeling Safe Project by delivering sessions to raise awareness within the local community on issues such as sexual exploitation, consent and relationships (required during the daytime once a month)
5) Skills Sharer – someone who is able to attend Kairos WWT events on an ad hoc basis to offer their skills e.g. facilitating sessions such as yoga or hairdressing, or who can offer services such as decorating, man with a van etc (happy to remain on the Kairos WWT’s books as a volunteer to support as and when needed, when the service requires you or your service)
