We’d be happy to hear from you if you're interested in volunteering. Volunteers are absolutely integral to the running of our service, both at our drop-in and assisting with casework in the office.
Housing and Destitution Casework Intern
We are recruiting a new 2 day a week volunteer intern to work alongside our Destitution Coordinator providing destitution and housing support. Find out more by clicking here
We are particularly looking for people who can help in our kitchen from 1pm onwards, working with our amazing team to serve tea and coffee and helping us to tidy things away. E-mail Sarah if you're interested and available.
Setting-up and packing away volunteers:
We need people who can help us set up the session by putting out tables and chairs, setting up files, laptops etc. and also help to pack it all away again at the end. If you are free on a Wednesday between 9am and 10:30am or 3:30pm and 5pm, please e-mail Sarah.
We need local volunteers who have a car to help us with our food donations.
We need people to help on Tuesday evenings, which involves collecting food from Wholefoods on Stoke Newington Church Street at 9.30pm and then bringing the collected food to St Mary's New Church Rooms for our Wednesday drop-in at 9am the following morning.
We also need people to help with collections on Wednesday morning, this involves doing some food shopping locally, collecting food from Growing Communities at 9.15am and dropping everything off at St Mary's New Church Rooms for 9.30am. If you are available to volunteer please e-mail Sarah
In addition to the above we're often looking for people who can speak other languages (including BSL), are IT experts or have some other useful skills.
We recruit advocacy and casework volunteers every few months and we ask for a commitment to volunteering once a fortnight as a minimum, for a period of six months. We ask you to shadow an experienced volunteer at a couple of Wednesday drop-ins and then attend a training session. We have recently recruited advocacy and casework volunteers, so may not be recruiting again for a little while. If you wish to be considered, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with a cv and a covering letter stating why you are interested in volunteering with us.
