Volunteer for Shelter
Our Project Managers work with our volunteers to coordinate tasks in accordance with the availability of our volunteers.
The tasks we regularly require support with is for the collection of donations, food etc. and ideally, we look for volunteers that would be willing to drive the van. We also look for volunteers to assist with our fundraising events that we run throughout the year.
The Jersey Homeless Outreach Group (JHOG) provide a service to contact 'rough sleepers' with the intention of assisting them to move to direct access accommodation in as short a time as practicably possible. JHOG also provide food, warm drinks and blankets to ‘rough sleepers’. The service is provided by volunteers, which work in conjunction with The Shelter Trust. The volunteers often support staff at The Shelter Trust to complete the daily tasks required, in providing support to homeless community of Jersey.
JHOG volunteers aim to go out on Mondays and Wednesdays, however, there are also food donations the Trust collects from various places around the Island, with the help of our volunteers.
With reference to donations, the contact is Aztec House: 730235.
We would always welcome suggestions as to ideas how volunteers can assist the Trust.
Our only restriction is to ensure that we maintain the confidentiality of our clients and in doing so, where a volunteer performs a role where they may be based at one of our sites or in contact with our clients, all volunteers are now required to undergo Disclosure & Barring Services (DBS) checks through the Jersey Vetting Bureau before commencement. In addition, we would obtain two employment references.
