There are many reasons why people choose to volunteer for St Basils. Some have personally experienced youth homelesness, have friends or family who have been affected, to further their skills and competencies or are motivated by the simple desire to make a difference.
Volunteers play an important role in the development of St Basils' services. Volunteers bring an enormous range of experiences and skills with them, pioneer innovative ways of working, greatly increase the potential scope of our work around youth homelesness and improve our flexibility of response to current and future needs.
Giving your time can offer many rewards including enjoyment, personal satisfaction, new skills, personal development, recognition of your abilities and potential and improved confidence and self-esteem. We want every volunteer experience to be a good one and aim to make sure that all volunteers feel valued for their contribution to their community, to their peers, their colleagues, young people and throughout St Basils' services.
