VOLUNTEER WITH US
We are looking for dynamic, motivated and reliable volunteers who are passionate about ending rough sleeping and who are able to relate well with people from all walks of life. We ask for a minimum commitment of a four hour shift once a fortnight.
Assessment Hub Volunteers
Assessment Hub Volunteers will assist and support the assessment and reconnection team working with clients who have been newly referred to the No Second Night Out hubs. Shifts include a variety of tasks and are available at a time to suit each volunteer.
Reconnection Team Volunteers
Reconnection Team Volunteers will support the work of the Reconnection Ambassadors to secure accommodation for clients in the privately rented sector. This will involve helping clients search for properties online, complete forms and make email or phone call enquires about properties. Volunteers will also be asked to accompany clients to the staging post accommodation from either hub. Shifts are available from 9am – 7pm on weekdays and are based in Islington.
If you are interested in appyling for either the Assessment Hub or Reconnection Team Volunteer role please complete an application form and send to email@example.com You will then be invited to an informal interview.
We are currently looking for new volunteers to support the StreetLink team. To express your interest in volunteering please fill out the volunteer application form and return it to firstname.lastname@example.org by Sunday 10th March 2013 (unfortunately, we are not able to accept CVs, covering letters or emails in lieu of a completed application form).
Anyone across England who is concerned about a rough sleeper can tell us about them via the StreetLink website www.streetlink.org.uk, or by calling the 24/7 StreetLink team. Our volunteers support the StreetLink team by taking calls on the 24 hour StreetLink phoneline, processing rough sleeper referrals made via the StreetLink website, following up on voice and email messages and contacting members of the public to let them know what has happened as a result of their referral.
If you are passionate about helping rough sleepers and can commit to at least one shift per fortnight at our Shepherds Bush centre, over six months or more, we would love to hear from you. Please note the London Rough Sleeping Referral Line is answered by the StreetLink team/
