Crisis Skylight Merseyside launches new volunteer programme
Crisis Skylight Merseyside is launching a new volunteer programme to support its services.
Crisis Skylight Merseyside began outreach to homeless and vulnerably housed people for the first time in October 2011, offering structured courses, taster sessions and one-to-one support to help people learn, develop skills and improve their confidence.
One year on, and with an ever-growing client base, the team is on the lookout for volunteers to support its services.
Opportunities are wide ranging, including: teaching assistant roles to support learning sessions; art roles to help support arts, photography and textile classes; events roles to help plan and run art gallery visits, as well as larger scale events such as the Homeless Games and administration roles to help in office.
Kate Farrell, Director of Crisis Skylight Merseyside said: “Volunteers play an integral role at Crisis. Every year across the UK, over 10,000 people give their time, energy and skills to help us deliver services, campaign, fundraise and provide administrative and IT support. We could not change so many lives without their hard work.”
“At Crisis Skylight Merseyside we are delighted to launch our new volunteer programme. We urge anyone who is interested in helping us deliver our life changing services in the local area to keep an eye on the Merseyside pages of the Crisis website, where all roles will be advertised.”
