You can help us in a number of ways, such as giving us your time to volunteer, making a donation, giving us goods or providing services.
DONATE TO SUPPORT ONSITE ACTIVITIES
We always love to receive items to use in our courses and groups, such as art and craft materials and kitchen utensils.
PASS ON SKILLS, MENTOR, LEAD AND ORGANISE
We try to offer our residents a range of activities, on and off site, so that they can occupy their time constructively, helping them to move forwards to an independent life. Volunteer to run or support a session.
HELP US PROMOTE OUR CAUSE
We are not a big charity, and need lots of support on social media and in the community to raise awareness for our cause, share the work we do and fundraise.
WHAT DOES A HARBOUR VOLUNTEER DO?
All sorts of things – from teaching cooking skills to leading arts and crafts sessions, taking residents on fishing trips, feeding the Llama, helping our maintenance team out with building tasks, administration and anything else that can support us in our mission to alleviate homelessness and support people to gain confidence and live more independently.
The main thing is that volunteers share our ethos and – it doesn’t matter if you have a little time to give or a lot, we welcome volunteers with a range of skills and interests.
All volunteers have an induction and have support with training should they need it and many people who volunteer with us go on to employment having increased their confidence and gained valuable work experience with us.
We take students on placements and those who need observation time and can help volunteers with references and networking for future placements. If you are interested in volunteering with Harbour we’d love to hear from you.
