The Nightshelter began opening on Sundays in 2013 although since COVID19 we are now open 24/7 which means we need volunteers to assist us over the weekend. 

There is always a member of staff on duty, but Saturday and Sunday slots for volunteers run from 9am to 1pm and 1 to 5pm on a Saturday and from 9am to midday, midday to 3pm and 3pm to 6pm on a Sunday. In addition there are the usual evening and night-time volunteer roles.

Saturday and Sundays have quite a casual, laid back feel to them. Over the weekend brunch is served about 11am, volunteers may help prepare vegetables for the evening meal or put out afternoon cakes. They may sort and pack away donated clothes. There is the opportunity to sit in the TV lounge and chat with residents or simply bring in a book or catch up on personal emails. The important thing is to be a “presence” at the Nightshelter because without a volunteer helper the Nightshelter is not allowed to open.

What skills do I need?

No special skills required.
