Get Involved.

We are in the middle of a new volunteer recruitment programme; we have nine lovely ladies joining us to help with drop-in & outreach in the first instance. They have been invited to initial sessions at The Magdalene Group, getting to know us & each other. They are about to embark on Voluntary Norfolk's Volunteer Passport training, & hopefully will be undertaking some shadowing shifts with the Doorway Women's Service before too long. Welcome to : Sarah F, Rachel, Sue-Lee, Samantha, Ruth, Lottie, Sarah S, Yvonne, plus Charlotte who will be fulfilling the co-ordinator role & working with us to ensure volunteering rotas & shifts are filled.

We are always seeking enthusiastic & reliable volunteers for various roles within The Magdalene Group front-line services, but particularly with the Doorway women’s service, to be involved in the late evening outreach programme, daytime drop-in service, administration or client support roles.

There are volunteering opportunities in the following areas:

Doorway Women's Services

Outreach – The Doorway team are available through street outreach and inreach in Norwich to sex workers to provide crisis-intervention, access to sexual health services and safety advice or just a hot drink and a chat. Outreach takes place once a week on a Thursday or Friday night.

Drop-In – We would particularly welcome any arts/crafts/textiles speciality to bring a creative edge to drop in.  We hold these sessions on Monday and Wednesday afternoons between 1.00 & 3.00 pm.

Please get in touch for more information.

Some quotes from our volunteers...


“On my first ever shift on outreach I remember…her being given love, support, a hot drink, chocolate and the knowledge that someone truly valued her…who could fail to be moved by the unconditional support given and also by the optimism of those we help.”


“I have volunteered at The Magdalene Group for 18 years. I have seen many changes; the group has grown beyond recognition over the years. I work in drop-in on a Wednesday afternoon…I find volunteering very rewarding, providing someone with a shower, hot meal, washing facilities and a safe place to stay…”


“I love volunteering and doing outreach as we get to engage with some of the most marginalized women with respect and warmth, it’s very rewarding.”
