Community Volunteer - Home for Good

Home for Good is a volunteer-powered, London-wide befriending project run by The Passage. Our volunteers provide bespoke support to vulnerable and formerly homeless clients who have been resettled into their own accommodation, and/or are facing isolation.
The purpose of the service is to empower people to establish connections and thrive in what will often be a new community for them. If you want to make a lasting difference to someone’s life, then this is an opportunity for you.
• You will be matched with a client in your local area with the aim of assisting them to get to know their local area and link into local community services
• Providing reliable, regular (weekly or fortnightly) and sustained contact for up to a year
• Encouraging the achievement of personal goals
• Participating in activities of interest to the client and empowering them to continue independently
Our Community Intervention Team makes contact on the streets with those sleeping rough in Victoria.

About The Passage - London areas

The Passage runs London’s largest voluntary sector resource centre for homeless and vulnerable people: each day we help up to 200 men and women.
Our team of Outreach Workers makes contact, often late at night or early in the morning, with those sleeping rough in Victoria as they are bedding down or getting up each day.
Our 16 self-contained studio flats in Montfort House have staff support on site and specialise in helping very long term rough sleepers.
We welcome and treat clients with respect and dignity, and find out what they need and want. We offer professional and appropriate advice and help according to the client’s needs and aspirations. We agree an action plan with clients which is time limited with the aim of supporting clients out of homelessness.
