EDV Hub volunteers provide information, support and referral services to people experiencing an eating disorder and their families, responding to a variety of telephone, email and face-to-face enquiries.
The Hub is a phone and web based support service, with volunteers welcome to operate from home or at the EDV office in Abbotsford. It operates from Monday to Friday between 9.30am and 4.30pm. A commitment of a weekly four-hour shift for a minimum period of 12 months is required (shift times are 9:30am to 1pm or 1pm to 4.30pm).
Volunteers participate in an in-house training course, followed by observations and supervised calls. A three-month probationary period applies. Ongoing training, support and debriefing are provided. If you have had a personal experience with an eating disorder, you must be recovered in order to volunteer.
