Opportunity: Learning Mentor

We are looking for volunteer learning mentors to support children with their homework and revision at our hostel-based Homework Club.

Our Homework Club is based in one of Camden Council’s hostels, and it provides resident children with much-needed space and quiet away from their overcrowded family units to work and study. On top of this, our volunteer learning mentors offer one-to-one academic support to individual children, helping them with homework tasks, revision, and test preparation.

Volunteer participation enables us to offer an intensive level of learning support to the children attending the club, who face considerable disadvantage in their academic development due to the general lack of space and privacy for study that hostel life entails.

We aim to reduce the isolation that clients often experience when they are resettled, and thereby reduce the number of people who abandon their accommodation and return to the streets. Through the involvement of volunteers, the service empowers clients to put down roots and thrive in their new communities.

Opportunity: Play Support Worker

We are looking for volunteers to spend time with, engage and inspire homeless children resident in Camden’s temporary accommodation hostels.

Our after-school-club is based in one of Camden Council’s hostels, and it provides resident children with much-needed play space, creative resources, a lending library, outdoor activities, and healthy after-school snacks. Our volunteer playworkers provide support to our professional staff by being able to give one-to-one attention to individual children in the club, whether by engaging in imaginative play or creative activities, reading with them, participating in outdoor games, or helping them attend to our kitchen garden. The also give practical help to our small staff team, helping to set up and close down the club so we can offer a high level of service to our families.

Volunteer participation enables us to have a high adult-child ratio, which means children benefit from the close engagement and encouragement in their personal and creative development from role-model adults.

This role provides clients with either no or little experience with computers with one-to-one support, helping them to overcome initial fears or learning barriers. With increasing confidence, they can access the Learning and Employment Hub independently. The service helps those clients seeking to address digital skills gaps and improve their confidence in order to increase their employability and household income potential.

Opportunity: Digital Inclusion Volunteer

Opportunity: Double Exposure Project Leader

Double Exposure aims to empower individuals who have experienced homelessness through providing them with a creative platform (via film photgraphy) for self-expression. In doing so, we hope to aid them in regaining self-confidence and become the narrators of their own stories. Each week, our participants start the session by penning down their thoughts for the week. These thoughts form the theme of photography for that week. The participants are then given a disposable camera and are taken to various parts of London eg. Regents Canal, Shoreditch etc. The project culminates in a public exhibition of the work produced each week, to raise awareness for the homelessness issue. As project leaders, you would be in charge of the overall project/activity plan, budget allocation, liason (with One Housing Group) and volunteer management. Other than DBS checks, there are no other requirements needed.
