Helpliners needed!

Our next English Helpline training at AWARE will be happening in 2017

The AWARE Helpline is the first point of contact for all of our support services. The Helpline hours are 3pm to 9.30pm, Mondays to Fridays. This includes 3 shifts (3pm to 6pm, 4pm to 7pm, and 7pm to 9.30pm).

Our Helpline training lasts approximately 5 months and meets once a week.

“AWARE Helpline is run by women only and aims to help women in distress situations. It is supported by committed helpliners who find the helping experience very fulfilling!”

“Taking part in AWARE’s helpline training programme has been a wonderful and informative experience that has not only prepared me for AWARE’s helpline but has contributed to my masters of counselling studies in a big way! I made many new friends along the way and I was given an insight into the personal challenges that women face across all of society. Every training session was highly organised with excellent presenters from both within and outside AWARE. After 6 months of training I feel very confident about working on the helpline.” 

“Being a helpliner with AWARE has been both challenging and hugely rewarding. I have learnt more about women’s issues, the law in Singapore, and the support/resources available to them here, but also about how to listen and the power of empathy. As a volunteer, I have felt both appreciated and supported by the Support Services team, as well as proud to be able to assist them to help women in need, in the small way that I do. “
