Rather than give money to a rough sleeper many prefer to give time, food and friendship and they can do this through Devizes Opendoors. Some volunteers support one session a month, others one a fortnight and some once or twice a week. Some prefer to work in the kitchen whilst others like to carry out reception duties and socialise at the tables.
In the coming year the role of Befrienders is going to be developed. There also needs to be one or two volunteers to take charge of the clothing store and others to help with fund raising events.
If you would like to apply to be a volunteer please contact Angie (07899 563 695) or John (07828 041152) and arrange a preliminary visit and chat. You can then complete an application form and begin a trial period as a volunteer to see what will suit you best in terms of how often to come and what role(s) to carry out.
