Bethany Christian Trust

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.

Current opportunities

The Buddy Club in Moredun runs for children and elderly people. Volunteers will need to help plan, prepare and supervise children's activities and engage with the children, many of whom face difficult challenges. Volunteers will also need to ensure that elderly group members are supported to take part in the activities. Volunteers should help staff to implement health and safety procedures, and to be aware of when it is appropriate to alert a staff member if concerns arise.

1 mission, 6 shops, 1000's of donations. Our shops need you! Retail volunteers are the backbone of our shops. A day can include sorting donations, operating the till or pricing stock- but every day, and every shop, is different! Each volunteer brings their own skills, experience and character to a role.

Restore, recycle and rejuvenate donated furniture in order to sell in our shops and in doing so: a) Help to fund the work we do eradicating homelessness b) Make positive steps toward sustainability c) Learn, and share, useful and transferable skills with the group. This can include painting, repairs, decoupage, re-upholstering and more.

This role requires the volunteer to pick up food from four locations and deliver it to the Care Van kitchen. The volunteer will need to liaise with the pick-up locations with regards to time and food availability.
