Volunteering

Day Centre

A variety of roles are available to pursue at our Day Centre. Whether it is front-line work with young people or assisting behind the scenes, there is something for everyone.

We also have roles available which do not directly involve engaging with young people. This includes making food parcels, sorting clothes donations, gardening and administration. Roles such as these are ad-hoc on Monday to Friday, from 9am to 5pm.

For more information regarding volunteering at the Day Centre, email Julie Foden at julie.foden@wearestreetlife.org

Night Shelter (Currently closed due to COVID)

Opening at 7pm until 9am the next morning, three workers assist in the operation of our Shelter. Two workers stay overnight.

For more information regarding volunteering at the Shelter, email Julie Foden at julie.foden@wearestreetlife.org

Food for Thought

It isn’t just front-line workers who contribute to the Shelter. Our Food for Thought campaign gives people an opportunity to cook a meal for young people and staff.

All you need to do to get involved is cook a hot meal for 8 young people and 2 workers, and deliver to the Shelter between 7 to 7.30pm, ready to be served.
If you wish to provide food for the Shelter, email Julie Foden at julie.foden@wearestreetlife.org

Work Placements

As well as volunteers, we also welcome workers on placement at the Day Centre and/or Night Shelter (including students at college/university who are required to complete a placement as part of their studies).
Please be aware that face-to-face work with young people is restricted to people aged 17 or over.
