Looking for a unique volunteering role, working alongside police intelligence? No two days will be the same!

We are now recruiting for volunteers for our successful STRIVE project.

What's STRIVE?

STRIVE is an Award-Winning Greater Manchester initiative led by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner. It operates across the boroughs by various organisations and is a multi-agency response to improve the support given to families who have been visited by the police due to a low level domestic incident where no crime has been logged. .

The Role:

Alongside another experienced volunteer, you will be visiting the homes of families who have previously been visited by the police, due to a low level domestic incident where no crime has been logged. We consider this role to be all about empowering people: the people we visit and the volunteers who are visiting them (that’s you!). Main duties include:

  • To visit the home with the intention of understanding the source of conflict
  • Supporting families and sign posting them to relevant support services and agencies
  • To log in and out of the safeguarding hub
  • To report back to the STRIVE Volunteer Coordinator on the visit

Within this role you will gain ‘hands on’ experience from the beginning and be supported with a specifically designed and robust volunteer structure, high quality training and the opportunity to progress, work closely with and be mentored by our STRIVE Team.

Why volunteer on the STRIVE project?

  • An interesting & diverse volunteering position where no two shifts are the same
  • Treated with respect as a “professional volunteer”
  • Expenses are reimbursed (capped)
  • One to one supervision
  • Group supervision

This role may suit those who have an interest in: Police, domestic abuse prevention, social work, criminology, psychology, forensics, anthropology, sociology, human behaviour, counselling or even those wanting to return to the workplace.

Former volunteers have gone on to have a range of careers including but not limited to; the police, clerical, domestic abuse and teaching.

Role Requirements:

  • 21+ years old
  • A commitment to wanting to help people
  • Use of a car with business insurance is preferable, but not essential
  • Attendance of training. Once training is complete, you need to commit 2.5 hours a week volunteering

Apply:

We have an incredibly diverse and vibrant team and welcome people from all walks of life with varying experience to apply. However please note that we do require a DBS check (paid by us). Each application is considered on an individual basis.

To apply, please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  stating your interest in the project & reasons for applying.
