Over winter the council will activate SWEP (Severe Weather Emergency Protocol) where emergency shelter is provided to those living on the streets. Cosgarne Hall will be providing this accommodation for our region. We need volunteers to help us support our guests to access the appropriate services as well as serving hot drinks and food during the evening.

Ideal qualities in a candidate:

  • Non-judgmental
  • Patient
  • Supportive
  • Compassionate


This provision is dependent on weather so we cannot offer exact rotas in advance but if you think you may be suitable for this position please get in touch with your availability and we will add you to our on-call database.


There will be several shifts during the night and we will work flexibly with you on availability.


Email: support@harbourhousing.com with your interest and availability.

Do you have any spare time during your week? Are you interested in developing your CV or just helping to support vulnerable people?


A volunteer befriender can take on many forms depending on the person, but it is usually someone who meets up with one of our residents several times a month for a coffee and a chat.

It is really important for our residents to have these social interactions and human connections outside of professional interactions. Befriending sessions can be anything from a chat in a coffee shop, to a weekly grocery shop or help doing some laundry.

We believe that all of our properties should be kept to a high standard that our residents can take pride in, and this includes maintaining our grounds and allotment area. Residents usually volunteer to perform most of the tasks in the gardens, but it would be great to have someone to come in a few times a month to do a little bit of gardening.


If the outdoors is your passion then we’d love to hear from you!
