Volunteering

St Vincent’s Housing Association actively supports the principle that everybody has a right to volunteer. We continually work to ensure that volunteering opportunities are developed across the organisation and to provide support to volunteers and equality of opportunity.

Involving volunteers in our activities brings a diversity of skills and experience to our work, assists us in meeting the needs of our clients and enriches the involvement we have with local communities. It brings an innovative and fresh perspective to our services and our volunteers are a great source of local knowledge.

There are opportunities to volunteer in our Foyers, Urban Care Centre, Sheltered Schemes and community projects working with our tenants and residents and in your communities.
