We all need to stay at home to protect ourselves and others. However, those who are well and not at risk can provide essential support for their family, friends and neighbours who cannot leave the house.

Description

Volunteers are required to help people build their confidence, learn new skills and be better informed about opportunities and support available.
The Drop-In should be a supportive and encouraging environment; something that any volunteer should help to foster. This includes:
-Welcoming people to the group and facilitating social interactions over a snack lunch.
-Helping with the set up and clean-up of the group
-Helping attendees write CV's and apply for paid/voluntary roles.

Organisation aims and objectives

Bethany Christian Trust exists to relieve the suffering and meet the long-term needs of homeless and vulnerable people. Our vision is that through Christian love in action homelessness will be reduced and vulnerable people empowered to live independently within society. Bethany operates services that take people from homelessness through to managing their own tenancy and building positive friendships.
