Current volunteer opportunities

If you have skills that you think might be useful, then please get in touch. Volunteering is a great way to make a meaningful contribution to a cause that matters to you. It's also a great way to meet people and develop new skills. 

There are many ways to get involved with SWEDA – from helping with outreach and marketing activities, volunteer counselling placements, helping maintain our buildings, PR opportunities – talk to us to discuss further. A great way to meet like-minded people, build up experience, gain confidence and get involved. Training is provided, expenses are paid and there is plenty of opportunity for learning throughout.

A number of our SWEDA Volunteers have personal experience of an eating disorder, either as a someone with an eating disorder or supporting someone else who has one, and would like to use this experience to help others. This can be helpful, but is not a pre requisite - all that's needed is a desire to learn and support others in a non-judgmental and user led environment.

Contact us using our contact form or call 01749 34 33 44 for more information.

We are looking to add to our team of Counsellors on Placement. This role requires a Trainee Counsellor, working to Level 4 of a Counselling Diploma (preferably at Yr2), looking to broaden your knowledge of Eating Disorders. You will be working in a one-to-one environment offering counselling to our clients who either have an eating disorder or who are caring for someone with an eating disorder. It is essential to have a willingness to embrace and develop a broad range of counselling models.

We are looking for Counsellors to work with Adults as well as Children & Young People.

We respectfully request that you commit to your placement for a minimum of two years to ensure consistency for our clients, who sometimes require long-term counselling support.
