Activities and Day Centre for Homeless People
Volunteers at the Booth Centre (www.boothcentre.org.uk) are involved in many things: helping to prepare and serve hot food (we provide 800 meals a week), cafe assistants, helping with activities such as music cafe, internet cafe, job club, quiz, arts & crafts, bingo, gardening and maintaining the building. Helping with the Centre's sports activities such as crown-green bowling, table tennis, soccer or boxing.
Volunteers will also be asked to assist with administration and reception work and re-stocking the store rooms with food items.
One of the most important aspects of the role is to be able to chat to the people who use the Centre, many of whom, have great challenges in their lives and find it comforting to be able to chat to people of all ages, backgrounds and cultures.
ABOUT THE BOOTH CENTRE
The Booth Centre is here to bring about positive change in the lives of people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, to help them plan for and realise a better future.
We do this by working alongside the people attending the centre, to provide activities which help people rebuild confidence and learn something new whilst having fun and building social connections. We run arts, employment and skills sessions daily and offer everyone a healthy, free breakfast and lunch.
Advice is available to help people find accommodation and overcome the practical difficulties they are facing.
