Volunteers will deliver evidence-based workshops on pregnancy decision-making and abortion to school students, which comply with best practice and support key public health objectives.

Our workshops encompass the practical aspects of pregnancy decision making including contraception choice and abortion which is evidence-led, non-judgmental and inclusive for all students.

Our aims include:

● Enabling students to understand the choices available to those facing unintended pregnancy and the factors that influence pregnancy decisions

● Motivating contraceptive use and encouraging access to appropriate services

● Increasing empathy for those facing an unintended pregnancy

● Decreasing the stigma around abortion

● Developing the communication skills to discuss abortion with parents and health professionals.

Time commitment

Volunteers will need to sign on to a training session, and then they will be able to sign onto volunteering sessions that suit them and their timetable.
What measures have you put in place to ensure volunteers’ safety during COVID-19?
We encourage routine and free COVID-19 testing as well as the wearing of masks and regular hand sanitisation. Volunteers must observe social distancing guidelines at training and volunteering sessions. Volunteers should not attend training or volunteering sessions if they are displaying symptoms or have been told to isolate.

This is an opportunity offered by a Student-Led Volunteering Project. It is run by UCL students and supported and supervised by staff in Students' Union UCL Volunteering Service.
