Volunteer with ParentLine

All our ParentLine call-takers are volunteers who give up a little of their time to help others - and we are always looking for more to join them.

Our volunteers are trained to a high standard, and the service is recognised by COSCA, the national body for counselling and psychotherapy in Scotland. Volunteer call-takers complete over 40 hours of introductory training before they are asked to commit to a weekly shift in our call centre. Regular supervision and ongoing training is provided.

We're currently recruiting for new volunteer call takers - find out more and apply.
