Without a doubt Spires would not be all that it is without the incredible enthusiasm, skills, and dedication of all our volunteers. Our volunteers make a significant contribution to our work and enable Spires to deliver a large range of services to the most vulnerable people in our community.
Spires has around 50 volunteers who come to Spires from all walks of life and support us in the centre, in the office, on outreach and in raising those all important funds. Whatever your background, whatever your skills and however you volunteer, you’ll find that volunteering for Spires is a rewarding and challenging experience.
Volunteers are always needed to help with a range of administrative tasks and there are always opportunities to help with the organisation and planning of fundraising events for Spires.
If you are interested in volunteering at Spires you will need to arrange a time to come in and see our Volunteer Coordinator for an informal chat. During this chat you will be asked to fill in an application form with your details as well as the names of two references (not family or friends) we can contact.
Volunteers are needed during all of the various sessions at the centre; Rough Sleeper’s Space, Open Access Drop-in, Women’s Space, as well as assisting our tutors in our adult learning courses.
Particular roles are assigned on a daily basis, depending on what is required in the moment.
Spires Streetlink is a project that exists to help meet the complex health, social, psychological and emotional needs of vulnerable women involved in sex work through outreach work in Lambeth.
