The day after World Homeless Day 2019, we joined in with other charities around the country to use the hashtag #YouMadeItHappen. It was being used to celebrate the volunteers that bring the work of the charities to life.
At Rentstart we’ve been really fortunate to have been given time from some amazing volunteers. Time is one of the most valuable resources and it’s inspiring to see what the charity can achieve by people giving their unique skills.
This has become even more important for us since opening our daytime Hub, as we have somewhere clients can come and meet with the charity face to face. It’s somewhere open every week day (soon every weekend as well), with no fixed agenda. Thanks to volunteers, we’ve been able to support people with valuable work skills, social skills and personal skills. Overall, we’ve been able to provide consistent, safe face to face time with our clients who really value it.
We’d love to have more volunteers involved in what we do. If you’d like to speak more about how you can help end homelessness locally with your skills, personality and time, please get in touch with John at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the office 01372 477167.
