Opportunities for service


I am responsible
when anyone anywhere reaches out for help  
I want the hand of AA always to be there 
and for that  
 I am responsible 

Please email chair.lnnorth@aamail.org if you would like to be of service or if you would like more information on these ways of carrying our message: 

Chat now: carry the message online to the still suffering alcoholic

Online response team: answering AA's email queries

Our twelfth step - carrying the message - is the basic service of aa. It is our principle aim and the main reason for our existence. aa is a society of alcoholics in action. We pledge to carry the message to the alcoholic who still suffers. If you, a sponsee, or someone you know, might be interested in pursuing this rewarding aspect of recovery then you are welcome to come along to our next intergroup meeting to ask questions and to learn more.

Write an article for Share magazine.

Home responder and 12 step service positions: we are looking for more home responders as well as additional people to make 12 step calls. We receive about a dozen calls each month and we are keen to ensure there is always somebody available to help. If you are interested in these positions, or know someone who might be interested, then please email Charlotte H for a job description or come along to our next intergroup meeting.

Service in prisons: we need more members to act as secretary or to give chairs at Pentonville prison. The more volunteers we have the more meetings we can run. This provides more help to the suffering alcoholic. We also need people to write to recovering alcoholics in prison.
 
Telephone service: a training session for telephone service is held at 1930 on the first Monday of each month at the Southern Service Office. Please come along if you would like to learn how telephone service works and you have at least one year's continuous sobriety.

The telephone office needs more volunteers. If you are already trained and would like to volunteer for a shift please contact the Southern Service Office. There is a particular need for people to cover our weekday shifts, 1000 - 1400 and 1400 - 1800. Can you spare a few hours once a week or once a month? 

Vacancy: Armed Services Liaison Officer (ASLO)
An Armed Services Liaison Officer is responsible for establishing local links with the Royal Navy, the Army and the Royal Air Force. ASLOs should be more than two years sober and have a good working knowledge of the AA Service Handbook.
