Our Care & Support group volunteers are the people who work directly with our residents.
Volunteering in the Care & Support group can involve:
- Being a key contact person for a resident or family of residents. The contact person will meet regularly with the residents to see how they are getting on and help them find help they need to progress their immigration case or deal with any other issues.
- Talking to landlords and letting agents to find new homes for people who need them.
- Managing properties - getting accounts set up for utilities, making sure everything is working OK
- Helping people move house, finding suitable furniture for residents
If this side of things appeals to you, we would love more volunteers.
Please fill in the form on our volunteer sign up page and tick the box for Care & Support group. We'll be in touch shortly to arrange a time for you to meet up with an existing volunteer for an interview.
We interview all Care & Support Group volunteers and ask for a Basic DBS check. If you have a Basic DBS certificate already, please bring it to the interview. If you don't already have a Basic DBS certificate, we can help you to get one before you start volunteering with residents.
