Harbour supports families and individuals who have been affected by domestic abuse. We believe that everyone has the right to live free from abuse and violence.
Volunteering at Harbour is a great way to gain valuable work experience, learn new skills and meet new people. We value our volunteers because they bring invaluable experience and enthusiasm to our work, and help to strengthen our links with the communities we serve.
