Volunteer in London

Volunteering year-round in London

Volunteering vacancies in London take place at Crisis Skylight London, our education, training and employment centre for homeless people, and in Crisis' corporate offices.  

Crisis Shops

Retail Assistant - We are opening our first shop!

Please come and volunteer with us if you have some spare time.

The Crisis shops will primarily sell donated goods sourced from the community but we will also pilot a small range of bought- in goods and pop-up members’ art sales. Crisis will work with the local communities and volunteers to develop shops that customers like and that engage people with the Crisis mission and advocate for homeless people across the UK. 

They will also provide opportunities for Crisis members to gain work experience in various aspects of retail, build self-confidence, sell arts and crafts and be active in the community in which they live.

The shops will extend the reach of the Crisis brand and directly support political and fundraising campaigns. 

For more information on this role download the Retail Assistant Volunteer role description. If you are interested in this role please complete the application form and email it to volunteering@crisis.org.uk or send it to: The Volunteering Dept, Crisis, 66 Commercial St, London, E1 6LT.
