“Spires is an extremely pleasant place to work in and staff and people that use the facilities are very friendly. My whole experience has left me talking to people about how much I love volunteering here.”

Outreach volunteer (women only)

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.

Outreach is carried out in the Streetlink van which travels around Lambeth on:

  • Monday, Thursday & Friday nights at 9.30pm – 1.30am
  • Monday mornings at 5am – 8am

Depending on what is required in the moment, there will be a mixture of:

  • Befriending and listening
  • Distributing information and advice
  • Supporting Spires Streetlink outreach staff
  • Distributing condoms

Please note that all volunteers interested in outreach work must first complete a minimum of one month volunteering in the centre and then an induction to outreach.
