For those who have no-one and need someone to reach out to, The Salvo Care Line offers just that, with fully trained staff that can help with most problems or make sure the caller is directed to someone who can help. The Care Line is manned by volunteers and full training is given. Telephone counselling courses are held in each state and while there may be a cost involved, there is a possibility of Government funding for your place. All volunteers must be over 21 and have a Christian commitment, though they do not need to be a member of the Salvation Army.
Courses vary in duration from 60 hours to 130 hours and a vocational certificate is awarded at the end of training. If you have compassionate nature, are a good listener and think that you can help those in need, visit the Salvos.
