Frequently asked questions

How can I volunteer?

You can find organisations in many countries, listed on the Home Page of this website.  If there is no existing centre in your country, you might be interested in setting one up, or volunteering with local organisations like the Red Cross or Red Crescent.

Can you set up a centre in my country?

We do not, ourselves, set up new services in different countries.  If you are interested in setting up a new service there is advice on 'Setting up a helpline' in the General Information section of this website.  If you do decide to do this, we can help with information and advice as you develop your ideas.

Do you fund projects?

We are a network of emotional support centres and unfortunately do not have a funding programme.

Are you a religious organisation?

No, we are not a religious organisation.
