Volunteering

Would you like to give some of your time to volunteer at the London Jesus Centre? We really appreciate any help you can give. You could volunteer in the Welcome Drop-in, or one of our lunch events supporting the homeless, refugees or older people. There are a variety of opportunities available and we are happy to discuss special group volunteering events with local business and universities.

“For me, volunteering at the drop in means I can get up-close to some of the most fundamental issues for the homeless. The main issues being the need for food, shelter and community. Working with vulnerable adults has enabled me to see just how much we are failing to address issues of mental health, inequality and homelessness.” – Chantelle, a student volunteer

    Because of the nature of our work, it may be necessary to complete criminal disclosure and barring services checks on volunteers. These will be kept in complete confidence. A criminal record will not necessarily exclude applicants from volunteering. The Jesus Centres Trust policy on ex-offenders is available on request.

    I understand that my volunteering may be subject to a disclosure.

    I am happy for the information I give to be put on my personal record on computer and used for statistical purposes. I understand it will be treated with confidentiality

    Please bring to your interview a written detail of any criminal convictions spent or unspent plus any other relevant information on police investigations etc. Give this in a sealed envelope to the interviewers.
