If you would like to volunteer for us, take a look at the opportunities below.
Social media volunteers
Social media savvy? We are looking for some social media volunteers to support our communications. We are trying to grow our social media presence and looking for creative ways to do this.
We want volunteers with energy and ideas. By working with us you will get experience of planning campaigns, creating social media content and analysing what works. Maybe you are studying digital marketing or would like experience in the charity sector?
If you have experience of using social media and have a few hours a week to spare please get in touch.
Visually capturing the stories of the people we work with can be difficult because of the sensitive work we do. We are looking for volunteer photographers who could help us tell our story and those of the people we work with.
Ideally you would be able to help us find models and have ideas for locations etc. We are looking for photographers to work on different projects throughout the year.
Would you like to create a little haven for our families? We are looking for volunteer gardeners to help us make the most of the gardens we have. If you have spare time to help us maintain and grow our gardens we would love to hear from you.
Jigsaw Contact centre
Every week lots of families get to see each other at our specially designed contact centre. We need help keeping our familiy spaces in tip top condition and welcoming for families. If you would like to work morel closely with families we also need some volunteers to help run our reception on Saturdays (This could be just one Saturday a month).
These volunteer roles can be built up around your interests, skills and when you are free.
To apply or find out more, email Sarah@stmichaelsfellowship.org.uk
Why volunteer for St Michael's?
This may be a chance to learn new skills and gain valuable experience. And you'll be helping us support some of the most vulnerable families in the country and make sure that their children are safe. Without our work many families could be separated that didn't need to be.
A lot of the parents we work with have often had traumatic and abusive childhoods themselves or been brought up in care. Our aim to break this cycle and improve the lives of their children. To do this we have to build trust and this takes time, dedication and great skill.
We also work for young parents in South London. These young parents and their children are disproportionally affected by poverty, especially with the capitals high rents and childcare costs.They are also at higher risk of isolation, domestic abuse and mental health issues. Having a trusted professional to turn has the power to really change a young parents and their children's lives.
By volunteering with us you will be supporting this difficult and complex work. Every day we are making a real difference to the lives of the children we work with and their families.
We want our volunteers to feel part of that, you will be able to see the difference your time is making to help us change people’s lives.
You will also be able to meet other like-minded people who are all committed to helping the most vulnerable in society.
