Description

Simon Community NI

Events and Fundraising Volunteer

Our vision is to see homelessness ended. Simon Community NI has been responding to homelessness in Northern Ireland since 1971, and annually support over 3,000 people through our services. We exist to support people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness to achieve a meaningful and independent place in their community. Our dedicated 22 accommodation projects provide 369 beds every night of the year for adults, young people and families.

We work without judgement to support our clients who may present with a range of complex needs including mental ill health, substance misuse and offending behaviours. We are dedicated to enabling clients to lead positive lives through motivating them to believe that change is possible.

Through our volunteering programme, campaigns and engaging with partners we are working to reduce the stigma of being homeless, and develop a community response to the challenges of homelessness. The invaluable experience gained through volunteering with us at Simon Community NI is sure to stay with you for a lifetime.
