Volunteer Case Study

“If you are thinking about volunteering at Leeway, I would say definitely do it!!”

  • Name: Abi
  • Role: Outreach Team
  • Volunteering For: 1 Year

Abi Lewis has volunteered with Leeway for a year and donates a day a week of her time to the busy Outreach team. She helps with administration tasks such as adding new details to the database, answering the advice and support phone, and making weekly calls to people experiencing domestic abuse who are waiting to be allocated an Outreach Worker.

The role also includes writing letters to be sent out about the Power to Change support programme, as well as helping at advice surgeries in the local community – a service for women who would rather talk about what’s happening at home, face to face with someone.

Abi says: “I enjoy all the roles that I undertake as it is all good experience. I hope that at the end of the day I am able to contribute to helping someone who is going through or has been through domestic abuse. If you are thinking about volunteering at Leeway, I would say definitely do it!! I love it! There are all sorts of areas you can volunteer in too.”
