Introduction

Are you looking for a community support volunteering role? Are you free Wednesdays 11am to 1pm and do you live in Battersea or Nine Elms in London? Would you like to help us run our Community Drop In project at the ROSE Community Centre?

What we need

What we need are some community support volunteers who can be present at our Community Support Drop In project at the ROSE Community Centre which we're planning to run every Wednesday between 11am and 1pm.

What the role involves

This is first contact unconditional community support, so you don't need any previous experience. You just need to be there, to be prepared to listen, and to be able to help and advise people who are reaching out for community support. We provide you with a short self-study induction introduction and provide you with mentoring, support and resources.

Most of the community support takes place on our community Message Board where you will be backed up by other community support volunteers and activists. In many cases the people coming into the Community Drop In project will need to be referred onto others or in some cases referred back to other organizations, local authorities and government departments.

Much of what the role involves is getting people involved in our community support network (getting them registered on our community Message Board) and providing community support.

You will probably be spending a lot of time sitting in a kitchen, drinking tea and coffee, and chatting to other people.

You will need to be registered on our community Message Board to help run this project. Everything about the role is worked out through Slack, an app which you can run on your smartphone.

We're putting this out there together with the project coordinators role for Qultura projects at the ROSE and also our other opportunities for volunteers and activists to support people such as the homeless out on the streets.
