Quiet Waters provides Christian Counselling and Support Services for all, regardless of faith, gender, ethnic origin or life choices. 'Christian' refers to their counsellors and the ethos of our service, and not necessarily to their client's beliefs and values, which will be respected - whatever they are.
The treasurer is usually a board member. The Chair of the Board, Tom Brown and the current treasurer Stephen Rae are available to discuss the role more fully with interested parties. First point of contact should be with Tom Brown at tom@ quiet-waters.org or by phone on 07808068280.
The treasurer presents reports for the Board which meets five times per year, and also prepares the annual accounts.
Although we are a Christian organisation we provide services to people of all faiths or none.

Help People at Difficult Times
Listening volunteers are there for anyone who needs someone, and provide confidential emotional support for people who are experiencing feelings of distress or despair, including those which may lead to suicide. Every seven seconds someone contacts us. Every seven seconds we can help someone turn their life around. As a listening volunteer you get the chance to make a real difference to someone’s future. You can offer support on the phone, email or text. Volunteers typically volunteer a minimum of a 4 hour duty per week, as well as a 4 hour night duty at monthly intervals. There are no qualifications required and you’ll receive full training to prepare you for the kinds of conversations you’ll have. And when you start out, you’ll have a mentor with you, to give you confidence you’re doing the right thing. You can also apply to help with administration or other non-listening support. Let us know how you would like to help.

At Cancer Support UK our Cancer Coach Volunteer Facilitators provide life changing support for people who have completed their cancer treatment and are now looking for support in how to return to life after cancer.
Cancer Coach Volunteer Facilitators manage and facilitate telephone and online (Zoom) support groups once a week for 6 weeks either over the phone or online via Zoom. The groups take the participants through a series of discussion topics and conversations, enabling them to have the confidence and skills to start to move forward in their recovery. We cover various topics such as why we feel the way we do after cancer, managing worry and anxiety, challenging unhelpful thought patterns and goal setting.
As our support is delivered in a group setting, it also gives the important element of peer support, whereby participants can connect with other people who recognize and understand how they feel.
All our Volunteer Facilitators are given full training on the group structure and materials and this is an ideal opportunity for experienced communicators to enhance their skills while making a major difference in the lives of people recovering from cancer treatment..
Our volunteers are required to have experience in facilitation, coaching, training or counselling. We always welcome applications for people with a lived experience of cancer but we do ask that this experience was at least 2 years ago before considering volunteering.

Based in health, care and community settings, CCL is a service that promotes wellbeing by offering an active spiritual listening service. CCL helps people explore their deepest hurts and draw strength from their own inner resources and from the communities of support around them. CCL is a short term, early intervention model of person-centred, assets-based, spiritual listening with the aim of promoting personal and communal spiritual wellbeing.
We are looking for volunteers to become listeners with the following experience: 1. Recognition of a spiritual dimension to life in self and/or others (create a safe space for the person to verbalise whatever gets in the way of their wellbeing and resilience) 2. Personal resilience, receptiveness to the pain of others 3. High degree of reflexivity, ability to recognise own inner process 4. Accepting and non-judgmental presence, commitment to person-centred ways of being and doing 5. Advanced communication skills, ability to handle raw feelings and emotions 6. Ability to foster wellbeing and autonomy rather than cultivate neediness and dependency 7. Ability to hold clear boundaries about issues and relationships 8. Ability to demonstrate previous experience in active listening it is expected that potential Listeners would be able to demonstrate these skills within their training and continue to develop these qualities when delivering the service.
Based in a health care setting, usually a GP Practice. Commitment to 4 days training and a half day a week am/pm listening. Referral based listening service usually from GP or other Health Professionals.
