What our staff say about us

I absolutely love the job, the pay is good, the team are amazing, not just on the helpline but the whole company. Everybody is so compassionate and they recognise that mental health is important. Any role within this field has its stresses, but you get such a reward in knowing that you have helped so many people in various situations and it doesn’t go unrecognised by management.”
Helpline Response Team Advisor (Indeed)
Really supportive management and a CEO who is super grounded and inclusive. Supportive and friendly community amongst colleagues. The role is challenging but extremely rewarding and the vast range of experience gained is attractive for future roles.” Child and Young Person’s Independent Domestic Violence Advisor (Indeed)
“Interesting, challenging job. Good pay scale, enjoyable work, opportunity for career advancement. Need to be self-reliant and work independently, able to cope with the pressure of a high caseload, but very rewarding to help very vulnerable people.”
