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.

Crisis volunteer promise

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:

  • Ensure that you understand the difference we make together
  • Provide you with support from a named person
  • Work hard to make you feel valued
  • Give you the opportunity to support us in different ways
  • Equip you to carry out your role effectively
  • Listen to your feedback carefully

Featured role: Shop retail assistant, Camberwell Green

The Crisis shops primarily sell donated goods sourced from the community.

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.

Core tasks will include:

  • Carry out various retail tasks including sorting, pricing, steaming, visual merchandising, customer service and operating a till in a shop environment
  • Provide courteous and helpful customer service
  • Screen donated products for saleable quality items and presenting goods for sale

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