How to help

Would you like to…

  • Volunteer for us?
  • Get updates about our work?
  • Find out about training and events?
  • Give a donation or fundraise for us?


There are opportunities to volunteer with us during the day in the year-round Drop-In as well as in the evening and weekend during the Winter Night Shelter. 


Ways to help in the Drop-In vary widely and all are equally important. Whether you are making hot drinks, cooking, sorting clothing or food donations, playing games or chatting with people, you are making a difference. Also, we welcome volunteers with professional skills, who are able to informally offer legal advice, hairdressing, benefits advice or podiatry to our services. The aim of Drop-In is to make this welcoming and safe place for people to come.

Winter Night Shelter

We have several roles for anyone who can help for at least one evening, night or a morning during the coldest months of the year. All of them are vital to make sure we can run a safe shelter. All we ask is that you attend Winter Night Shelter training session of about 2 hours. Roles include cooking, driving, listening and leading shifts.
