Support clients

A lot of our clients need TLC as an ongoing part of their recovery, especially where parenting and re-building relationships are concerned. They need the support of a committed, non-judgemental friend to achieve a life of their choosing, free from abuse.

Office and admin help

We are also always in need of volunteers to help us with various administrative duties, fundraising, marketing and promotions. If you’re a great communicator you could be going out giving talks about our work and actively creating opportunities for these.

Pattern Changing

Our Pattern Changing educational course always needs additional helpers and this is a rewarding role for volunteers. At a future date we may also need help with the delivery of a special parenting course for our recovering clients.

Work with young people

There are various roles helping children and young people in our refuge and in the community. We run educational programmes in schools when funding permits and this is a great opportunity for volunteers to help promote healthy relationships to the young people in our area.

Volunteer at re:store

We have our very own charity shops in Barnstaple and Bideford called re:love and re:store which need reliable volunteers. Please call us on 01271 377798.

If you would like to apply to be a volunteer, please fill out this form and return it to us by email: or post to Helen Frisby, NDADA, PO Box 141, Barnstaple, North Devon, EX32 7YN.
