Call for Al-Anon Helpline Volunteers

The relaunched and extended helpline that has been up and running for four years now and has been a great success. In that time over 10,000 calls have been answered by over 80 volunteers who have been volunteering 4 hours a week from their home.

New volunteers are always needed to ensure we can keep the helpline going 12 hours a day through 2019 and 2020.  This is a great opportunity for members located all around the country to help and strengthen our fellowship and grow in service. No matter where you are as long as you have a phone you can help. Training is provided at 4 regional locations Cork, Claremorris, Limerick and Dublin. New recruits will have an induction session from 11 am to 12:30 pm and 13:00 to 15:30 they are joined by exiting volunteers.

Dates for future workshops will be announced later in the year when the current crisis has eased. Should you have any queries please do not hesitate to get in contact at volunteers@alanon.ie. Your enthusiasm and help in continuing to promote and support this service is critical to maintaining a healthy nationwide helpline. All volunteers are required to be attending an Al-Anon group on a regular basis and to have at least 2 years experience in Al-Anon. If you want to get an application form by post or email please call email volunteers@alanon.ie Alternatively you can download a form here.
