Volunteering @ St Anne’s

Our busy Centre welcomes 50-70 clients each weekday morning and serves breakfast and lunch. We have two part-time paid workers, the Manager and the Catering Manager. They could not possibly run this busy service without the dedicated team of over 30 volunteers who are vital to the running of the Centre.

Our volunteers work incredibly hard preparing food, serving meals and clearing up afterwards. Other volunteers sign in and talk to the clients.

Volunteer commitment

Each volunteer commits to a minimum of one four-hour morning session a week and a maximum of two sessions. In return we train volunteers, and they gain valuable experience working with homeless and vulnerable clients.

Benefits of volunteering

Our kitchen is run to commercial standards and volunteers are trained in good practice, standing them in good stead if they want to work in catering. 

We are also prepared to provide references for volunteers once they have been with us for three months.

Get involved

We’d like to hear from people over eighteen who are interested in volunteering. You’re welcome to come to the Centre on any weekday morning to see Shelley, our Centre Manager, and have a chat about volunteering, or email us.
