We work with people who have experienced hate crime or discrimination to resolve conflict and repair harm.  As a volunteer you will initially receive training in mediation (6 days attending with some private study) as well as ongoing training and supervision throughout your volunteering role. 

Our volunteer practitioners co-work cases supportively and as a newly-trained volunteer you would be teamed up with an experienced mentor. The work is flexible and person-centred so our volunteers work at different times of the day and week, visiting people in their homes or other appropriate venues across Bristol.

We are committed to promoting and maintaining diversity among our volunteer team.  Our team welcomes and supports new volunteers; we learn from each other and from clients and their experiences.

Successful Candidates will:

  • Be interested and willing to learn a new set of skills
  • Be available for a volunteer selection day and initial training dates: (7 days)
  • Be willing to commit around 95 hours volunteering time per year for at least two years after the initial training period.
  • Be committed to understanding and resolving conflict, including that arising from hate crime and discrimination 

We would particularly welcome BME or LGBT+ and other applicants with characteristics or experiences which might add to the diversity of our volunteer group.
