Volunteer Induction Training
Our induction training is 2 full days of interactive training. You do not need to have any previous experience in working with people who have the potential to cause sexual harm. Our most powerful volunteers are 'normal' members of the community with the passion and commitment to our mission of no more victims.
During this training your suitability to Circles will be discreetly assessed and any questions or concerns you have answered.
