Volunteer With Us

With your support we can help transform lives

Looking for volunteering opportunities near you?

 

Could you contribute your time, skills and talents to help homeless and vulnerable people to transform their lives?

 

Perhaps you have some free time and want to make a difference in your local community, or you’re looking to gain new skills or build your CV.  

 

You may feel passionately about homelessness and want to do something about it.

Our volunteering opportunities put you at the heart of our work. From one-to-one mentoring to collecting food donations from local supermarkets, to passing on skills such as cooking on a budget or help in presenting workshops and outdoor activities; volunteers make an invaluable contribution in a wide variety of roles.

Whatever your background or level of work experience, we can offer productive and rewarding opportunities that match your talents and interests. 

As a volunteer you can play a key role in developing positive links into the local community for those in our service, helping them to build their self-esteem and a sense of belonging to that community. You can help challenge some of the inaccurate and negative perceptions of a homeless individual and contribute to raising awareness of homelessness as a local concern and not just an urban issue.

If you are interested in volunteering, please have a look at our current volunteer opportunities below or contact us to discuss ways your skills can help make a real and positive difference to those we support.
