Volunteering

Volunteers are central to our work. We work with 140 volunteers! There are lots of ways to get involved including: gardening; cooking; befriending; teaching English; DIY; reception; office support; sorting donated clothes and shoes; packing goods for people to deliver; deliveries; fixing donated laptops and phones; bike fixing; managing the queues for our Welcome Café; and more.

We hope to provide volunteering opportunities that suit all interests, skills, availability and levels of experience. Some roles require a regular commitment each week, whereas others can be more flexible or occasional.

We are in the process of recruiting a Volunteer and Befriending Co-ordinator so we can provide good support to all our volunteers. This may include an induction and safeguarding training, peer-support meetings, social opportunities and further training and development opportunities.

Please email phoebe.hendy@staugustinescentrehalifax.org.uk if you are interested in Volunteering and sign up to our newsletter below. Bear with us – it might be a few weeks until we get back to you.

Befriending

We will soon be re-developing a befriending service for people who are isolated or have additional needs that make it difficult for them to access our services, or would simply benefit from some friendship and extra support. Please email phoebe.hendy@staugustinescentrehalifax.org.uk if you are interested in being a Befriender. Bear with us – it might be a few weeks until we get back to you.
