From local events like the Big Sleep-Out, to our charity shops and Bike Workshops, to our Outreach Teams engaging with rough sleepers across the South West, volunteers can be found supporting our work everywhere we operate. Our volunteers do incredible work that helps us deliver the best possible service for people experiencing social exclusion.

Whether you’re looking to learn new skills, keep busy, give something back or share your knowledge and abilities we are immensely grateful for every offer of volunteering. It’s not just about donating your time. It’s about getting involved and showing your support to vulnerable or at-risk people, and it’s about going the extra mile to give them our best rather than making do.

We have lots of opportunities to get involved and are always interested to hear of new offers and ideas. If you don’t see a role for you, use our enquiry form below to let us know what about your interests, skills and availability, and we’ll be in touch when we have opportunities that might be right for you!

Day Centre Volunteer

Our new Bath Day Centre supports people experiencing rough sleeping by providing a safe place to come for warmth or shade, a cooked meal, positive company and a chance to engage with services in a neutral environment. The service will run on Monday’s and Tuesday’s initially, and we are working to extend opening across the week, from different locations each day. Volunteers will be a positive presence at the day centre, welcoming our clients, chatting with them and managing the refreshments stand at the venue.

We would also like to hear from anyone who has availability between 10am-1pm any day Monday to Friday.
