Volunteers are a huge part of The Passage and add tremendous value to our services, from engaging with rough sleepers on the street to supporting people in new accommodation. Between 1st April 2020 and 28th March 2021, 306 individuals volunteered over 9000 hours to prepare and deliver 40 000 meals to rough sleepers in accommodation.

Moving In Volunteer

The Home for Good scheme supports people with experience of homelessness to settle into their new home and get to know their new local area. Sometimes our less physically able clients require some help with moving in, assembling furniture, mounting shelves etc and we are looking for volunteers who are able to spare a few hours on an ad hoc basis to help make a house a home. Alternatively, the clients may be moving on from our Newman Street accommodation project into longer-term accommodation.

Volunteer Interpreter – Romanian

The Rough Sleepers Team are responsible for ensuring the centre is a safe and welcoming environment for clients. The team provides the initial contact for clients entering the Resource Centre and establishes the needs of clients by way of informal engagement and initial assessments.

As a Volunteer Interpreter, you will be performing a pivotal role supporting our Anti Modern Day Slavery team. We are experiencing an increase in the number of clients who are victims of modern day slavery, many of who are Romanian and don’t speak English. Staff in our Rough Sleeping Team are trained to identify potential victims of modern slavery and we also receive referrals from other organizations. We need a qualified interpreter to help us support and advise these clients. Clients, particularly those who are victims of modern slavery can be distressed and traumatized when we see them so you need to be prepared for that. You will always be supervised by a member of the anti modern day slavery team who are trained in dealing with trauma.
