With the help of our incredible and dedicated volunteers, we are able to offer a frontline service at a minimal cost as well as provide opportunities for our volunteers to gain experience.


We are so proud of our volunteers and eternally grateful for the work they do, and the part each of them plays in supporting our services and guests.

“Helping people in need without expectation of anything in return is one of the most fulfilling things we can do. I turn up, I help, we smile, we share a moment in each others’ day. That’s it. It’s genuinely one of the best things I do each week.”

I always go home with a smile, knowing that I have been a part of a team who in some small way have helped many people who use the facilities. There is a real community-feel about the place.”

Are You...


Supportive and encouraging?

Willing to get stuck in?


If you answered yes, then we would love to hear from you!

No experience of working or volunteering in the homelessness field is necessary, all training will be provided.


From being one of our collectors to supporting our weekly creative sessions, or working on a one-to-one basis with our mentees, there are many opportunities to volunteer with us.

You can get involved on both a regular or ad-hoc basis.
