Body & Soul
Organisation aims / mission / values

Beyond Boundaries is an early intervention and Body & Soul’s vital telephone support service built on our values of love, kindness, and a desire to understand one another. As a HIV Telephone Support Volunteer, you will specifically be calling members from the HIV service which supports people living and affected by HIV from ages 12 onwards. 

You will be part of an interdisciplinary team that offers ongoing support groups, casework support and therapy to support members who are living or affected by HIV. Some members have described this service as a "life-line" that makes them feel less alone.

Before you start in this role you will have a thorough induction into telephone skills as well as ongoing group reflective practice and other learning opportunities.

Time commitment

• We ask volunteers to commit to a minimum of 4 hours per week. Calls can be made from home or in our community at Body & Soul.
• To keep continuity for our members we would like volunteers to make a minimum commitment of 6 months.

This organisation is one of our community partner organisations.

Like all volunteer recruiters we work with, they have signed up to our service standards, agreeing to abide by our policy on partnership working.

In addition, the team here at Students’ Union UCL Volunteering Service is here to support you throughout your volunteering journey – you can get in touch at any time with any questions, queries or problems you encounter.
