Events and Fundraising Volunteer (Simon Community NI)
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.
Volunteers in this role will be added to our Events and
Fundraising Volunteer Database. When an event or fundraising opportunity
arises, an email will be sent to the database.
We ask that as a minimum, you commit to 4-6 events per year
to enable you to get the most from your role. You are however, more than
welcome to do more or even organise your own fundraising event which we can
support you with!
