Become a Remote Online Services Volunteer!

When you become a remote Online Services Crisis Line volunteer for Distress Centre, you get to make a difference in the lives of others, from the comfort of your home!

Online Services volunteers provide remote crisis support through online chat and email to anyone who contacts Distress Centre seeking help. Not everyone is comfortable talking on the phone and Distress Centre’s online services are critical to removing the barriers that prevent someone from seeking help.

You’ll use skills acquired in classroom theory, practical and ongoing training, and through continuous feedback to provide service users support, crisis intervention, and appropriate information and referrals to programs within Distress Centre and the community.
