CHS is looking for volunteers for its Helpline team

Jul 4, 2022

The free Community Help Service (CHS) 24/7 Helpline (02 648 40 14) provides a listening ear in English to callers of any nationality.

Whatever their problem, callers are provided with emotional support and/or general information on an anonymous and confidential basis.

CHS is interested in receiving applications, from men and women, to join its volunteer Helpline team. Volunteers should:

  • Be good listeners
  • Be non-judgmental & empathetic
  • Have easy access to Brussels
  • Be fluent in English
  • Expect to remain in Brussels for at least 18 months
  • Have day and evening availability with occasional night duties (approx. 8 hours per week in total)

No previous experience is necessary as, following the interview process, comprehensive training and regular professional supervision are provided.

For more information, please call the CHS office on 02 647 67 80, or email mentioning “Helpline Volunteer” in the subject line.

Should you decide to apply to become a Helpline volunteer, please do not mention your application to anyone but those closest to you, as confidentiality and anonymity are considered essential. We will explain more when we meet you!
