IDAS Volunteers decorating the children's playroom in one of our refuges

Whether you volunteer in our offices or work independently as one of our Champions there are lots of ways to support our work as a volunteer and make a difference to survivors of domestic and sexual abuse.

Our volunteers help us to deliver our services, fundraise and to spread the word about IDAS. We have volunteers who support our local teams across Yorkshire, these volunteer help in roles like working in one of our refuges, supporting our group work or helping in central roles such as writing our social media posts. Our volunteer roles are limited because we want to make sure that all our volunteers get the support they need to do a great job, while developing their own skills. By becoming a volunteer, you can really help IDAS make a difference to the people we support.

Volunteering in our projects isn’t the only way to help, we have a network of IDAS Champions. Champions are trained volunteers who work independently. IDAS Champions seek opportunities to raise awareness of the services that we provide. The Champion role can be undertaken alongside your existing commitments, it’s all about spotting where you can make a difference in something you already do or are involved with. For this reason, every champion has their own individual way of helping us raise awareness or funds. Meet some of our exiting Champions and find out more about the champions program and how to apply on our ‘Featured Champions’ page.

Normally we accept volunteer and champion applications via an online registration form.  However, due to the large number of people who have contacted us to volunteer recently we are unable to accept applications until July.  Please do visit the page again if you are interested in volunteering after this time.

If you would like to volunteer to run a fundraising or other activity for IDAS then please email us at
