I am currently a volunteer at the Barons Court Project, as well as a student at the Central School of Speech and Drama.
I conduct the relaxation and drama classes, as well as sometimes doing odd jobs such as running the drop in within the project.
I volunteer at the project because I wanted to give back to my community and help those less fortunate than myself.
I attend the project weekly and it's one of my highlights. This is because the atmosphere, within the project, is one of warmth and care.
I volunteer in the kitchen of the Barons Court Project twice a week. I wanted somewhere to work where I could help to feed people who are homeless. I have been homeless myself and wanted to give something back.
Our current volunteers, above, play a vital role in the project's work. Without them we
would not be able to run all our services and activities. Our volunteers help out in the
kitchen and drop in and also lead groups and activities, which enables us to offer more.
We welcome volunteers who have lived experience of homelessness or mental health issues as well as other people from the wider community.
For details on becoming a volunteer please follow the link below or contact us.
We welcome individuals who can volunteer with us on a regular basis, normally weekly. We ask
that volunteers commit to at least 3 months, as we have costs to cover and it also takes time
to build up relationships with our service users.
You may also have a particular interest or skill that you wish to offer e.g. running a music group, so please do contact us if you think that you have something to give that will enhance the life of the project and the people we serve.
We are happy to work with Corporate Groups and have enjoyed hosting many organisations. So that you get the best from your time with us, we need to ensure your offer matches our needs. We generally prefer groups of no more than ten people at any one time, due to the size of our building. However we can sometimes take larger groups over a number of days, or for one off events such as decorating the project. Do contact us if you think you might like to come and work with us and we can explore together how you can help.
This video features 3 corporate groups who have helped out at the project. Hear from them what it meant to be able to spend time with our community as well as how they helped us.
We do not have any vacancies at this time. Please check back soon.
