Become a part of a committed team of counsellors, and make a difference for the victims of stalking

Every Monday and Thursday from 5pm to 8pm, Danish Stalking Centre opens the telephone helpline to victims of stalking, friends and relatives of victims and professionals. The telephone helpline covers three areas: the supporting psychosocial dialogue, counselling and guidance on precautionary measures regarding stalking, and some legal advice.

The telephone helpline consists of qualified and committed volunteers with a relevant bachelor’s or master’s degree within the educational, psychological, social or legal area.

An employee in the organisation manages the e-mail counselling service, but in time, volunteers will manage it as well.

It is very important to us that our volunteer counsellors feel well prepared to handle the task. That is why all our volunteers receive thorough training, which you can read more about here.

As a volunteer counsellor, you have two shifts of three hours a month at minimum, and as a general rule, there will always be at least two counsellors and an employee present with whom to consult. We value a high degree of professionalism in the counselling, but we also give priority to making sure that it is pleasant and enjoyable for the volunteers to be there. Therefore, there will always be coffee/tea and some snacks, and room for chatting with the other counsellors between calls.
