10 great reasons to volunteer

Volunteering is a great way to help to make life better for homeless and vulnerable people in your local community. You also get to meet people, learn new skills & expand your horizons.

Jacqui, one of our volunteers, spoke to us and gave her top 10 reasons why she loves giving some of her time:

  1. I always come away with a smile on my face
  2. The events are great fun and very well organised
  3. There’s always a fantastic atmosphere on the day
  4. I know I’m supporting an extremely worthy cause
  5. The roles on the day are really varied so there’s something for everyone
  6. I know my time is appreciated whether I can offer 1 hour or 5 hours
  7. I get to meet lots of new people
  8. I see the commitment from the staff and other volunteers to help vulnerable people firsthand
  9. I have a birds eye view of some wonderful activities and events that I wouldn’t have otherwise seen
  10. I’ve learnt that homelessness can happen to anyone and through the support of Julian House many vulnerable people are given the guidance and support to get their lives back on track.
