Volunteers needed for pioneering project so no one spends second night on streets
If you would like to help people rough sleeping in London, No Second Night Out (NSNO) is looking for committed and passionate people to join their ranks now.
NSNO's vision is that by the end of 2012 no one will live on the streets of the Capital and no individual arriving on the streets will find themselves sleeping out for a second night. The project - which was launched just over a year ago - aims to provide a rapid response to new rough sleepers, ensuring they are provided an offer that means they do not have to sleep out for a second night.
Volunteers play a crucial role at NSNO and they are currently looking for dynamic, motivated and reliable volunteers, who are passionate about ending rough sleeping and who are able to relate well to people from all walks of life, to join the Assessment Hub and Rough Sleeping Referral Line volunteer teams.
The NSNO Assessment Hubs in Islington and Shepherd's Bush lie at the heart of the project as they are places of safety where new rough sleepers can be brought by outreach teams and where rough sleepers work with the dedicated team of Assessment Workers.
Crisis has supported NSNO since the project began, with around 80% of NSNO volunteers inspired to join up following their experience of Crisis at Christmas.
