Volunteer to help prevent sexual harm

Based in Salisbury



Our Vision... No more victims of sexual abuse. Help prevent sexual harm within your community.

Driven by our aspiration to prevent sexual abuse, we are a professional, forward-thinking independent charity, led by capable and committed people. Central to our delivery are carefully selected and trained volunteers who support, and hold to account, people who have sexually harmed others, contributing to their safe integration into local communities.

As a volunteer with Circles South West you will be making an important contribution to preventing further sexual abuse by helping reduce the risk of sexual offending by known perpetrators. Circles give ‘core member’ a safe space to spend time with volunteers from their local community who have knowledge of their harmful behaviour and risk. Many core members suffer from social isolation, emotional loneliness and limited social skills. The Circle gives these individuals the opportunity to develop communication skills and to have any distorted thinking challenged.

Circle meetings take place weekly, on the same day in the same location for a period of approx. 12 months. We ask that you can commit to this time frame when applying. Circles meet in a central, risk-assessed location, such as a community venue, for between 1-2 hours. Meeting are usually held in the afternoons or evenings and your circle will be made up of 4-5 local volunteers.

Circles require volunteers to submit minutes of the meeting as well as other small admin tasks and so we ask that you be IT proficient and bear in mind this will be a small extra time consideration on top of your meeting time. Travel and other expenses are paid and you will require two references and an enhanced DBS check.
