Welcome to volunteering. Volunteers are a vital and integral part of the fight to end homelessness. Mike Tuohy, a Crisis volunteer
I’m Mike Tuohy and I’ve been volunteering with Crisis for 38 years. I’ve seen Crisis change completely in this time, but one thing has always remained constant; and that’s how volunteers are a vital and integral part of the fight to support homeless people and to end homelessness.
At Crisis we value your hard work and the time you give to our members and guests, in our shops, and through campaigning and fundraising. It's important for us to be clear about how we treat our volunteers.
If you are a volunteer with Crisis, we will:
The Crisis shops (Shop from Crisis) primarily sell donated goods sourced from the community.
Crisis works with the local communities and volunteers to develop shops that customers like and engages people with the Crisis mission and advocate for homeless people across the UK.
They 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 against homelessness.
You will be welcoming and helpful to our customers in the shop. You will also be assisting the shop manager with various tasks and duties in order to run the shop effectively.
Make a difference to the lives of homeless people by volunteering with us all year-round. Whether it’s minutes or months, hours or days, the time you give really does matter.
Crisis at Christmas is only made possible through the generosity of thousands of volunteers.
Volunteering with your company can bring a wealth of expertise to everyone affected by homelessness.
Can you contribute specific skills that add value to the lives of either Crisis members or our staff?
