Volunteers are the driving force behind our organisation...we have a number of roles currently available and operate a waiting list. All volunteers receive full support and training.
Next Steps Mentors
Are you a good listener with strong empathy skills? Our long term 'Next Steps' project is looking for mentors. The time commitment is flexible and varied. You may have a background in training, coaching or pastoral work although this is not essential.
Mentors come alongside clients to work with them on a personal plan, and to assist as needed. Examples may include form filling, budgeting, job applications, training courses, accessing mental health support and other sessions as we develop this service.
Victoria Centre Reception
Are you looking to develop office skills or have some time to give? We need reception cover at our main hub. The role involves answering the phone and directing calls, greeting visitors, receiving donations and keeping the general reception area tidy. Morning and afternoon hours available Mon-Fri.
Food Pantry Volunteers
Weekly, varied time commitment and various locations
We have need of volunteers at a number of our Food Pantries across Southport and the surrounding areas. We have a mixture of roles available including stock control and 'front of house' chatters and cash handlers. Volunteers will also need to be confident to sign post where relevant. Full training and support will be provided. We also require a small van driver for our Pantries.
Every other Wednesday between 10am-1pm
The driver’s mate is needed to help collect food donations from collection points around Southport & Formby, and deliver them to our Hub at St Peter’s Centre. This role involves a degree of heavy lifting; moving and carrying bags and boxes along with regular loading and unloading of our van. You will need to comply with our Driving policy and be willing to attend any relevant training to your role.
If you are interested in any of these roles please complete a volunteer application form and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
