Aberdeen Cyrenians

Charity registered in Scotland SC014849

Aberdeen Cyrenians is a voluntary organisation and one of Scotland's major charities, which aims to help homeless people by alleviating homelessness, through the provision of support and accommodation. We provide direct services for homeless people, aiming to help them to move forward with their lives.

Since 1968, we have provided an increasing range of services for homeless people, and at present, we meet the needs of around 2,000 people each year.

In the main, we provide hostel type accommodation, run a drop in centre, help service users in gaining rented accommodation, provide advice, information and emotional support and provide training and access to education and employment opportunities.

We welcome and actively encourage the involvement of volunteers in a variety of areas to help us to open the doors wider for homeless people in Aberdeen.

Current opportunity

Give the gift of time, and make a difference. Aberdeen Cyrenians started life as a soup kitchen run by student volunteers back in 1968. That ethos of volunteering and direct community support remains at the heart of what we do and it is essential in allowing us to provide the range of support that our service users rely on. We’re fully flexible and can take regular, ad hoc, seasonal and team volunteers across a range of services and opportunities. Our volunteer roles are as varied as our projects, service users and volunteers, whatever your interest, we've got something that's just right for you. All help makes a real difference and is always appreciated. Excellent training and support is provided to all volunteers.
