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. Others prefer to help out behind the scenes, for example by helping with fundraising activities, or by collecting food and clothing donations. In the coming year the role of Befrienders is going to be developed, a role which will be available to experienced volunteers who have undertaken the basic training courses as a minimum.
