The Hackney Winter Night Shelter season runs from 1st November to 31st March.
Each night, shelter volunteers work one or more shifts to: set up at the venue, welcome guests, cook an evening meal, stay overnight, prepare and serve breakfast and, finally, pack up after helping guests have a positive start to their day.
Volunteers are vital to the work we do and we recognise and value the huge contribution they make. In return, we offer a rewarding experience and the opportunity to contribute to combating homelessness. Volunteers can gain experience within the homelessness sector in a positive, friendly and supportive environment.
We offer all our volunteers an induction pack and training session and we have in place a range of policies to ensure the safety and wellbeing of both guests and volunteers.
If you are interested in volunteering at the 2020-2021 shelter – thank you! Please do email [email protected] and we will contact you in September 2020 to invite you to one of our volunteering sessions.
Please note all volunteers at the night shelter must be over 18.
