You can make a huge difference to the lives of those we help. Will you join us?

We are pleased to share that our Night Shelter will be open this winter from 28 November 2022 – 31 March 2023! Providing warm, safe overnight accommodation during the coldest months, along with evening meals and breakfast.

We have 12 incredible venues that are helping us to host our shelter each night, and we are hugely grateful to each and every one of you that takes the time to sign up to be a part of a team that has a huge impact on the lives of those who are homeless. 

For the volunteering opportunities at our Night Shelter Venues and Unity Park Station please see all the roles available below. 

Roles required at a Night Shelter Venue

Each session is run by a volunteer team led by an experienced Team Leader who coordinates the rotas and roles for the team.

Current volunteering opportunities are for night duty on alternate Wednesday and Thursday evenings at The Ridgeway Centre (Wolverton).

Night duty (9:30pm−6:45am): Keep watch overnight as part of a small team, 2 shifts within this time to ensure taking turns to sleep when needed. Being available in case of any unexpected eventualities in the night such as a guest having a problem or feeling unwell, or supervising evacuation in the event of a fire. The night watch is usually a quiet time so it is possible to read/relax during the shift.

The situation constantly changes so please keep an eye on this page for new volunteering opportunities as they arise.

Unity Park Station Reception café roles
