Volunteering

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. During lock down 306 volunteers helped to prepare deliver 40 000 meals to rough sleepers in accommodation.

 

The ongoing Coronavirus pandemic has meant we have had to adapt our services to keep our clients, volunteers and staff safe to minimize the risk of infection for everyone. Consequently, some of our volunteering role are temporarily paused. Current vacancies are listed on this page which is updated as and when we need to recruit for different roles. In the meantime, check out our FAQ’s about volunteering with us.

 

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 organisations. We need an 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.
