Volunteering gives you the opportunity to use your talents, develop new skills, meet a diverse range of people and become an integral part of our team. There are lots of different ways you can help and we will help you to find the role that suits you and your circumstances best.
By donating your time to us, you will be helping us to prevent homelessness by getting people off the streets, keeping people off the streets and creating opportunities for people to rebuild their lives.
A lot of our volunteers are placed within our projects, working directly with our homeless or vulnerably-housed clients. This might involve helping one of our residents to complete a benefits claim form that could help them get their lives back on track or delivering hot breakfast, advice and support to rough sleepers as part of an early morning outreach service.
Volunteering has an enormous impact on what we are able to achieve and the range of services and support we are able to provide. Without our volunteers, we simply couldn’t reach the number of people that we do and so we like to think of them as our local heroes.
At The Wallich, we believe that everyone has the right to a home – but more than that, that everyone has the right to feel safe, valued and positive about their future.
Whether you can spare a couple of hours or are looking for a longer term role, join our team of local heroes and volunteer to help homeless people in your community today.In the run up to Christmas 2017, we have been overwhelmed by the amount of people looking to volunteer, thank you all very much. This means, however, that we will not be recruiting new volunteers until the new year.
