Transforming lives through offering food, shelter, hope and support to the most vulnerable in our community

All our projects rely heavily on volunteers to support our work as we would not be able to carry out the work without them! Our volunteers predominantly come from churches across the city. They support us by rolling up their sleeves to serve food, wash dishes, sweep the floor, make beds, being trustees or simply just showing some love to the service users who come through our doors. 
 

Faith

As a Christian charity we expect our volunteers to identify themselves as Christians and to be linked with a local Christian community. There are many reasons for this, but the most significant is that our work is as an expression of the Church in action within the community.

Training
Training will be given to all volunteers. We are also committed to providing good quality training for those supporting individuals in recovery and to equip our volunteers for the work they do. We do this in partnership with the Life Recovery Group (LRG). Our current training series Understanding Addiction & Supporting Recovery in the Church runs from May 2016 - March 2017. Find out more

  • Each shift in the Wild Goose, volunteers serve around 500 cups of tea and coffee. This equates to 1500 hot drinks served every day, and a grand total of 5kg of sugar and 1.2kg of coffee!
  • Every breakfast, the Wild Goose serves 300 pieces of toast.
  • In February we recorded 491 times that volunteers came to support our projects.
  • Everyday in the Wild Goose, volunteers and staff wash up over 1500 dirty dishes and kitchen utensils.
  • Spring of Hope does 4-10 loads of washing each day, meaning that their washing machine is on almost constantly!
