About this volunteer role

They will work alongside our Senior Management Group, providing them with advice and guidance to help them make the right decisions for The Passage, and the people we work with.

The group will be a one-year pilot, to trial the best way to involve people who truly understand what it is like to be homeless in how we manage The Passage and our decision making at the highest level.
