Coronavirus update: Abortion Support Network is closely monitoring the rapidly changing situation. As long as borders and clinics remain open, we will help those who are able to safely travel access abortions abroad. We will also provide information on safe abortion pills for home use where appropriate. If you need an abortion, please get in touch and we will help you as much as we are able. Coronavirus is simply YET ANOTHER obstacle faced by people living in countries with inadequate provision of abortion services.

Why isn’t ASN recruiting for volunteer hosts?

Many people have contacted ASN offering to provide accommodation to women travelling for abortion, or to travel with them to and from clinics. During Covid-19, we stopped offering in-person accommodation, and clinics and hospitals stopped allowing support people to join clients. Even when companions are allowed in clinics, they are kept in the waiting room while the patient goes elsewhere in the building. With Covid subsiding, we are looking into whether or not to restart our accommodation service, balancing the needs of our clients and our capacity for recruiting, training and managing volunteer hosts. We will post any new roles here in the first instance.

If you have any questions about a volunteer role, please email [email protected]. If you have any questions about ASN or AWB as organisations, or about a paid role, please email [email protected].
