Night Shelter Volunteers

The Night Shelter is run almost entirely by a fantastic team of volunteers.

Volunteering to help at the Night Shelter

72 different people did at least one shift last year, and the feedback we’ve got from volunteers has been great. Friendships have been made and good times have been had, and lots of thanks all around.

No previous experience or particular skills are required to volunteer – the only attributes sought are compassion for the homeless, and willingness to commit time and care to this role. Annual training is provided for all volunteers – please follow the link to find details of training dates.

There are various documents to download at the bottom of the page including an Information Sheet for Volunteers and a Volunteer Application Form.

Night Shelter rota

Volunteers sign up for shifts using the online Night Shelter rota. A link to the rota will be posted here soon.

Communication with volunteers

We usually communicate by email, text, or postings in the Facebook Group. Please check regularly for messages.

Please feel free to contact Mandy Sherrard, the Night Shelter Coordinator.
