As a volunteer you will make a difference in the lives of the most vulnerable in our community.

Some types of help we need include volunteering…

  • …in our Winter Night Shelter – hosting, cooking and doing laundry
  • …in our Support Centre – welcoming clients and helping Support Workers, providing advice, translating, administration
  • …behind the scenes – office admin, IT, accounting, charity governance, managing donated clothes and food
  • …to help fundraise – running events, raising money yourself, staffing food drives and other events
  • …to help raise awareness of our work – speaking, running events
  • …and more

We’ll give you all the training you need. 

Because of the nature of our work, and that we work with vulnerable people, our volunteers who work with our clients must be fully trained, referenced and commit to particular volunteer roles.

We will take up references for all volunteers working directly with clients. 

Everyone is welcome to apply to volunteer

Our volunteers come from a wide variety of backgrounds and ages and of all faiths and none.

You can read about our values here.

Our volunteers give 15,000 hours of time each year.

More importantly, through their patience and care they create the friendly and welcoming atmosphere our clients appreciate, and make a real difference in the lives of the most vulnerable in our community.

Our volunteer work and support has been recognised with The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
