We primarily support clients with substance misuse issues and homelessness. In this role volunteers will assist staff in running our day centre for vulnerable adults. Our clients have a range of issues from addiction and homelessness to social isolation.
What skills do I need?
Just the ability to get involved and chat to clients, be a working part of the team and bring your personality!
What will I gain?
A deeper understanding of the challenges faced by clients with multiple and debilitating issues. practical experience and a rewarding sense that you have helped some of the most marginalised and under represented people in Sheffield.

Ideally one set day per week between 9:30 and 3:30. If courses don't allow for this we can be flexible. lunch is provided (please bring dietary needs to our attention!)
